Just nailed it.

I couldn't agree more with these sentiments.

I have seen this done both ways. I have been taught that, in more formal settings, in deference to the host society's Headmen, only the Headmen stand up to dance after the push you describe.

Having been to the Austin dance many times over the years, when I heard the applause, I just think to myself: "Yeah. I just nailed that stop. Just NAILED it. Thank you. Thank you very much."

I don't mean to put words in Kio-Manche's mouth, but I think what was meant was that you do not have to be a veteran to wear a gourd dance blanket.
