Margot’s interest in Cajun music and dance came through viewing some Cajun dance instruction videos from Michaul’s Restaurant in New Orleans, Louisiana and London in England, obtained by Geoff Le Blanc of the Cajun Roux band, where she got hooked on the exciting music and dance. Margot and her ex-dance partner Brian Hickey learnt Cajun dancing from these videos.
In 1995 Margot Hitchcock and Brian Hickey were invited by a special commission to run a Cajun dance workshop at the National Folk Festival in Canberra. This was followed by successful Cajun Dance workshops at the 1996, 1998 and 1999 National Folk Festival, Canberra in April over Easter.
Following these successful dance workshops Margot took on teaching Cajun dancing as a complete new concept in Melbourne and different festivals – to see more go to the “About Margot’ page to read about where and when Margot taught Cajun dancing.
