            i love fancy shawl because it has more dancing to do then round dance or straight or slide step. you can do a crow hop, shake, trick, fast n fancy or just an ordinary straight. you get into shape alot to and stay fit. its just plain energetic.
            i love to dance circles around those younger or older girls from bc.
            i'm 18 and what can i say??? oh well. have fun at your next pow-wow. to all of those other fancy dancers at, pm me sometime soon.
            your friend always,
            Stephanie:) :)

              Oooooh Yeah!

              I noticed that when I had switched from Fancy Shawl to Northern Cloth, I missed the movement of fancy shawl dancing. Although both dance styles are extremely demanding physically, I missed being able to just Jump and Kick and move and spin and use my arms!!!:p

                have more fun

                for me, i love dancing fancy shawl because there's a lot of creative moves i can do. i'm not restricted to certain moves and there's a lot of different songs that we fancy dancers can dance to too. it's challenging, fast, and colorful. it keeps my spirits up. whenever i'm feeling down, all i have to do is put in a powwow cd and jam to it. after at least 2 songs, i'm feeling a lot better.

                  I'm looking for a Fancy Shawl Dancer who would be interested in giving a program for the public on the Medicine Bow National Forest (Laramie, WY). This is part of our Moonwalk series and this particular program focuses on butterflies and the Fancy Shawl Dance. I do apologize up front for any ignorance...

                  by FancyStar
                  Ugh, ok ladies got a question? Are you ever too old or too fat to fancy shawl? I mean I'm not mad skilled and blessed like the greats, : Lisa, Irene, Grace to name a few legends.
