Lagniappe Ladies is a community-minded entertainment troupe of empowered women from all walks of life. Based in Lafayette in the heart of South Louisiana, we are committed to bringing fun, laughter and merriment to the world. We perform at parades, fundraisers, parties, Mardi Gras balls, festivals, senior living facilities and community events.

Lagniappe Ladies was founded in December 2018 and quickly grew in time to perform at Mardi Gras events in February 2019. Our performance schedule is growing from strictly Mardi Gras parades, to parades, festivals and events throughout the year. A schedule of upcoming performances can be found on the calendar.

The members of Lagniappe Ladies are ages 21 and up with the oldest in their seventies. For our members, the organization has become more than a dance performance group. It is a group of friends who support each other through life’s trials and triumphs. Lagniappe Ladies prefer to be the kind of women who straightens another woman’s tiara without telling the world that it was crooked.

We RISE by lifting others!
