Adult Tap Dance

They are still here practicing their routines and teaching others the art of tap dancing. The Dixie Dancers of Ruston have been teaching tap to adults every Thursday and Friday at 10:00AM, since 2007. It is great music and great fun with these ladies for only $30 per month, And, you don’t need to have any dance experience. So, get on the move and get dancing! For more information, please contact Mrs. Pasty Hinton at 318-245-1254. 


Buster Cotten’s Karate offers classes teaching the style of Jordan Korean Karate / Tae Kwan Do. This style of martial arts has been taught in the Ruston community for nearly 40 years and is a year-round program that teaches students of all ages the merits of loyalty, ability, and integrity through a curriculum teaching fundamental arm and leg techniques for practical self-defense. Buster Cotten’s Karate also provides opportunities for its students to participate at local, state, and national level competition events.

This traditional Korean Karate program was founded by Dr. David Jordan, a 10th degree black belt. All classes are instructed by Buster Cotten, a 7th degree black belt and five-time National Instructor of the Year with the United States Karate Alliance. Free trial lessons are available for new students.
