  • diff types of songs?

    This might sound 'well duh', but i'm still learning (adult-start dancer :)) and i just wanted to make sure: are there diff types of songs for cloth like in jingle? i've been watching and paying attention and i haven't noticed ppl dancing diff. in the competitions (i'm keeping myself to the inter-tribals only), but that thought came to me in my insomnia this morning and i figured it worth asking.

        um well northern singers have higer pitched vocals while the southern singers have lower vocals.

        with the northern songs, northern dancers are dancing stationary or toe-heel. during the honor beats, you will see some of them raise their fans.

        with the southern songs, southern dancers are dancing the regular step. during the honor beats, you will see them bend over and dance in and out from the center of the circle.
        Don't ever stop dancing

          Don't forget the round dance.
          The only time its too late to start dancing is when you're dead.

              how do you tell if it is a round dance, and how do you differ the step? (or is this the grand entry thing?)

              thanks for all the help!

                with the round dance, u'll see stepping sideways around the arena.

                grand entry is when everyone comes in lined up.
