    When you have a surgery that can impact your fine motor skills (such as walking) the road to recovery can be tricky. I'm sure you were put in some sort of therapy (I would hope) that helped you cope and walk well again... However sometimes this therapy will make your muscles compensate for weaker muscles, so you may feel your walking perfect, and straight, however your body could be moving awkwardly.

    I've had troubles with both my knees in the past, and therapy although its helped my walking, has really hurt my dancing, last time I went out for a chicken dance, my muscles where so trained on keeping me up straight, that I looked like a stiff legged moron.

    It does change some things, however, in time, you and your body will eventually adjust (I'm not competiing using a chicken dance again! but perhaps one day you will)

    Wish you the best.

      Yes I do think you are right.. Because when I first start dancing I get like this bubble feeling in my hips and after I start dancing and warming up.. it seems to go away.. So I think I just need to train myself again.. and practice slowly.. Thank you for info.. (wado)

          So I finally convinced my mom to let me learn the culture. She is even going to take some regalia-making classes with me too but I'm going into pow wow dancing classes alone.

          by Singing Otter
          Hey yall,

          I came up with a really good topic. Something I'm looking at right now. What have been your tougher lessons as a jingle dancer? What are you thankful for? I don't want to have to limit it just to us... but for now it's a start.
