Northern or Southern

Which would you rather kick it up to, a Northern song or a Southern song?
Then would you rather have a fast song or a moderate speed song?

Myself, I feel I always jam out to a fast northern song!!
When I dance to one of those I just relax and feel the music move me. Those kind of songs are the ones where moves and style just seem to come easily and flow.
When it is a southern song with a moderate beat, I just feel like it's to slow!! I really have too much time for thinking when I dance!! The song seems to take forever!!


What about youn's?

Well, I'm too out-of-shape nowadays to dance to either one.. :p ..BUT I like watching fancy shawl dancers dance to Northern moderate songs. They just seem so much more graceful and you get to see more footwork. Sometimes when watching them dance to the fast songs, all they have time for is kick, kick, kick, spin, spin, kick, kick, kick, spin over to the next spot, kick, kick, kick... :Chatter , you know? There's only a few dancers that I've seen that can dance to the fast ones and still look graceful (you ladies, obviously... ;) :p ).

HEY

I dance northern (grass) and sing southern. Usually it's just us and another drum, so I end up dancing mostly to northern songs.

But when a good group of southern singers get going, you can't stand still. They tend to keep it up with three songs or more in a row. Got to be in shape!!!

I can and like to dance to both - as long as they are doing it right. There have been some groups who do the song on beat - I just can't find the grove - can't tell between the hard / soft.

Anyway, my two cents.

if i am in oklahoma i definitely want to dance to southern b'cuz they know how to sing southern style there. If I am anywhere else I just get disappointed in drum groups who try to sing southern style.

I can't stand slow southern songs.. there is no energy in the song to get you pepped up or energized to jam. Plus I get tired really quick on slow songs. So I love fast nothern songs... but I think it is really cool when women's fancy can jam out to a southern ruffle or super fast southern.
