  • I choice it because

    Why are what made you decide to dance the style you do? I did because my cousin helped me understand alot of the style. My dad danced some but mainly before I could walk then he gave it up. What's your reason?

    Because, honestly, it was the most comfortable one to do. Being more relaxed, I felt I could show greater respect and honor to those that danced before me.

              i was always drawn to jingle dancing. and i finally took it up once one of my elders told me i could after i worked with them, and came to understand the responsibility of it. :)

                i do a couple of styles, women's nothern tradition and eastern blanket. i like the traditional because i am comfortable. i like the eastern blanket because i get to tell the phases of a woman's life.

                  I've always danced in the southern cloth categories. I danced fancy shawl at one point, but felt rather more comfortable dancing southern because I'm from the south.

                    Yes, you have seen me wearing various regalia. Some do not agree, but to each his own. I had decided to dance Northern Tradtional for several reasons: 1) Because I had been "told" that I should dance this before all others, and 2) I just love being able to get the fringe going:D There aint NOTHING else on earth like it:) Can't explain it, but I feel "at home" when I dance that style;)

                      Being the proud Ojibway....I dance Jingle. Not only that, but I have always been drawn to that style and saw myself in a dream dancing jingle.

                              Because Granny B. said I must traditional dance when I was very young. I suppose because I'm her oldest grand-daughter.

                                Why you chose to straight dance.

                                I never had much choice. It is what my folks did. That was OK with me. I will say more after hearing some responses.

                                You young guys out there have so many more choices nowadays. Why straight dance?

                                Why do you dance Jingle instead of another style? What makes you choose this style of dance instead of another?

                                Calf and Ankle pain when I dance?
                                by chibi
                                It's ALWAYS on my left calf, right near the top of my knee, kind of on the inside, and then it shoots up from my ankle to about halfway up my calf. Always on the inside. I'm not sure if it might be because I put more weight on that side when I dance or what, but it keeps me from going a full song, unless...

                                Hello, I am new to this website. I have studied the spiritual aspect and the historical meaning of the jingle dress dance with 2 of my most respected elders, both whom have been dancing this style for many years. This has been a long and difficult process. I feel that I am almost ready to come out into...
