Cheroke,

Hmmmm?

That's a hard one*

Okay I got it!



The best step I like to see a grass dancer do is...




Step on top of an open manhole covered with grass!

Well I like grass dancers when they do the shoulder shake. Some grass dancers that I know that do this is Buck Spotted Tail and Jon Taken Alive.

The Best ancers

Delwin Fiddler does all those old style moves low to the ground, they are harder to do than all that spinning & stuff.

Drew's moves are fresh with that contemporary flair with a little old style mixed in there. Seen a lot of grass dancers use his moves. Look out He is in men's now.

Well it's good to hear that there is one Wade in this world who is well adjusted to such a strange name. Sheesh, every time I hear somebody say "wait," I turn around and say, "what?" What's worse is when the Mexicano Spanish speakers start spewing "pinche huey!" I turn around again and say "que?"

The best move is when the right foot slides to the side, spins around three turns and a half, the arms turn backwards and flips towards the east at a 65 degree angle and for a twist, the bod juts out four times at a tempo equal to a beat and a half of the speed of the drumbeat and then finishes off with a perpendicular slide towards the west. Now thats original.

That's my favorite. Oh yeah the head should be bobbing similar to that of a Michael Jordan bobblehead. It's a classic.

I have this thing I do during honor beats, where I start rotating and i stamp down really hard on each honor beat and continue the spinning, and I know just when to stop on time... it looks simple, but its powerful.

Vague explanation isn't it?
