  • Up and Coming Fancy Dancers

    This thread is to list dancers you think have what it takes to be the next "big thing". Off hand, I'd have to say Travis "Thunder" Lovett. Never really met him, but have seen him dance on some videos at some of the bigger pow wows shown on this site, and have seen his name in the winner's list a lot lately. He's got a good style and a nice outfit that he obviously has put a lot of work into. Don't remember him around as a teen so maybe he just kicked it as an adult...not sure, but I like his style. He doesn't just spin like a lot of fancy dancers do these days. He actually has some moves.

    I see his tribe is listed as Cherokee...guess he's Cherokee Nation or UKB from Oklahoma.

    Next...
    I think everyone on this rez is addicted to Harry Potter...lol...

    I met Travis when he first started out years ago. Yeah he's a great dancer, his mom told me he would get up at 5 in the morning to practice dancing then go to school come home and practice some more. He' from my neck of the woods, haven't seen him in a while though. I guess now I know where he's been.

    Another couple of goods dancer on th female side of fancy are Walayla Brown she's 16 and is a great dancer. Also Angaline Jumper age 10 and has really got some moves.
    The look on a baby's face the first time they hear the drum is priceless.......

        In my area (oklahoma) there are some serious up and coming fancy dancers. Kingston Pipestem and Graham Primeaux Jr are really top-notch teen fancy dancers. It's exciting to watch them dance and they are always rivals for first place.

          Both Kingston and Graham are great dancers. have you seen Simon Washee? This kid is also from Oklahoma and has won almost every major powwow around. He dances in the juniors and at age 11 has quite a following. I have seen him beat both Graham and Kingston at big time powwows. His father once told me he teaches himself and his brother who is also a good jr fancy to dance. 1st at IICOT, Ponca, Qaupaw,just to name a few. It was great to see that little guy tear up the competition up in WY. and CA. also.

                    They Are All In Teens Except For Sonny.. Hes Still In Juniors... Unfortunatly Powwows.com Doesnt Record Juniors Or Teens For Some Odd Reason... But Im Sure You Can Find Videos Of Them On Youtube Or Something...

                      I;ll have to look for them then. Nothing better to watch then a really awesome young dancer. You see great adults all the time but the awesome teen and juniors are few and far between.

                          Get the bounce in his steps
                          by MrzDancerMom
                          Hello, all my kids dance. My son is No. Tradish (he is Tachi/Lakota/S.Ute ndn). He has all his regalia and loves to dance.

                          But I need help or advice on how we can help him get the 'bounce' in his steps. I think he gets self-conscience out there at pow wows when he dances and he 'freezes'

                          by Lakota Wiyan
                          My son is changing from boys traditional to grass this August. He wants to use a cowboy hat instead of a roach. I've seen this a few times around at different powwows, and I was hoping to get some feed back from grass dancers on what you think about this. I think it's cool because he is doing it in...
