Talking Wanting to learn how to dance....

Good Morning,

I am curious about how to start dancing... not only for myself but also my daughter. I feel like I have been straying from my culture. I have always been interested in Pow Wow. My mother is not the traditional type of woman, so I feel like I have lacked in my traditional ways severely. Now as I face being a mother to my own child, I would like her to be more involved in her culture instead of watching from the sidelines like me when I was younger. As the saying goes, "better late than never," I would like to learn now. Also it would be something that my daughter and I could do together. So i'm very curious and hopefully you guys could give me some direction to head in. I would like to know what type of dance would be preferably the best for my daughter and I to do, not together, but to start out at... My daughter is four and a half years old and I am twenty-one years old. Also, th big question would be, how would we learn to dance, like do we need an instructor or how do we go about learning???

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!!!

Not being nosey, but where do you live? There are NDNs everywhere. lol

If you're urban, check out one of the organizations in your area. As far as dancing, don't be trying to do the man categories...and be careful with Jingle Dress. Some people feel you should be brought in the correct way for that.

YouTube has a grip of videos. AmigoKumeyaay has a site in YouTube (Amigo Kandu) with all kinds of powwow dance videos. He just got back from a world wide tour all the way to Arizona. Got some good dancing on his videos.

Most people here have a frend who has a friend who has a friend who lives in your area.

Good luck and let us know what you decided to dance.
