As they say in New Orleans, “Laissez les bons temps rouler!” or “Let the good times roll!”

New Orleans is a jambalaya of French, Spanish and Cajun traditions that is as uniquely American as the music it created – Dixie Land Jazz.

From strolling the streets of French Quarter to riding on a boat through the Bayou, your students will experience a city with a one-of-a-kind culture and personality. The city’s “joie de vivre” is evident through New Orleanians love of music, parades, and any excuse to celebrate life!
