“The Nyxette’s signature top hats and tails bring an element of New York-style dancing to Mardi Gras, which has made the Nyxettes one of the premier dance troupes during Mardi Gras,” said Nyxettes Director and Krewe of Nyx Captain Julie Lea. “The Nyxettes have become an integral extension of our sisterhood and represent the Krewe at events throughout the year.”
The Nola Nyxettes were founded in 2012 and made their debut at the Krewe of Nyx Ball on February 1, 2014. The team marches in several carnival parades during the season including – Freret, King Arthur, Nyx, Iris, Thoth, and Zulu.
The group has performed at several Pelicans pre-game shows, numerous community parades, and several Mardi Gras balls.
