So for some they like to just stand and barely move, singing along with the singers.
Others like to move around getting those blessings in the arena...
Still others dance for those that can't dance any longer.

But the most special time is when the song is particular powerfull you will see some bounce off the ground both feet not touching the ground and war whoops all around you making your heart soar with the song!! But that is usually down in Gourd Dance Country in around Carnegie Oklahoma July 2nd 3rd and 4th... Those are special days!!!

Good words, pahbi.
