  • ???Round Dance???

    How could I not know what a Round Dance is??? OK...someone pleeze tell me is there a difference in Round Dance for Northern and Southern? what are the differences? I am totally confused after the competition...Have mercy on me,I am still learning...

    Reason I am asking, I recently danced competition at a pw the MC said, Round dance Northern, okay? Now, two of us danced side step on the side of the circle, and the other ladies danced the Southern style within the circle...see my confusion...

    The first two songs were Southern to a southern drum, and the last one was to a Northern drum asking for a Round Dance...

    Clear up my mass confusion here.... I feel like I did something wrong to side step on the side of the circle or is there a difference?

    u got it right, its almost like a side step just about like its more stationary. i watch them ladiez dance and they look better when they swing their fringes. swing them with the beat as best you can. jus keep practicing and watch as much dancers as you can.

      The way that I learned it is that you dance side step around the arena. So I think you did it the right way. Just look at other people dance. Oh yes swing that fringe.

          The only way that I have ever danced a Round dance is around the arena. I am a Southern dancer and that is how I dance either to a Northern or Southern round dance.

          Not really understanding how you explained the other ladies dancing. To me sounds like you got it right.

          If someone knows differently, please let me know as well?

            Ok, what about honor beats on a round dance contest? One lady raised her fan on the honor beats.

            Any comments?
