Zydeco Zoom

Zerick is about to make his first appearance on stage and he is nervous to the bone.  Find out how he calms himself and goes on to thrill his listeners with his accordion playing.  While you’re at it, you’ll experience the rhythmic beat of Louisiana's two-stepping Zydeco.  It will get your feet moving – come on and do the Zydeco Zoom!
