    "in the northwest they have the round bustle... yeah you are right it's all about footwork in no way is this dance related to the grass or fancy dance. if you dance a lil grass and or a lil fancy and have judges that know the chicken they'll put a big zero on your ballot..."

      Can Grassdancers dance the Chicken Dance?
      by Ramon
      Yesterday at the Pow Wow, I was dancing the Chicken Dance in my Grass Regalia (I was pretty good, If I can say so). I keep hearing mixed messages on the Chicken Dance. Is the Chicken Dance only for Traditional Dancers?
