  • double beat vs. single beat

    recently i've noticed that fancy dancers are given the double beat crow hop to dance to where they dance "crow style" crow hop... as opposed to the single beat where they dance more "fancy style" crow hop including more jumping around, footwork, and movements.
    now this is something i've just recently noticed and was inquiring about...what do you as fancy dancers prefer and does it occur often that you recieve a double beat as opposed to a single beat?
    has it been occuring more recently that you've been getting a double beat?
    personally, i've always enjoyed watching fancy shawl, especially when they do crow hop...single beat style cause it's much more challenging and there's more footwork involved in the dance.
    i mean...don't get me wrong... i think it's neat that fancy dancers are learning the "crow style" crow hop and they're doing it more...very interesting...
    but am i making sence? help me out here & let me know what's up & whatcha think....thanks!

                i enjoy watching the double beat crow hops, but I would rather see the Crow style dancers doing it instead. I prefer the single beat for fancy shawl. it seperates the "in shape" women from the "out of shape" women.

                Single Beat for Fancy Shawl.

                        I like both styles as well. If the dancers only get one round of competition, then I like the "single" beat.

                          In my opinion I think that a double beat is ok for specials or somthing. But when it's a contest, especially in women's fancy one of the goals that a dancer should have is to challenge there athletic ability. they all do the same thing in a double beat song. I think what should be done is having women's traditional do that song. Crow women when they enter a catagory they enter women's traditional, right?

                          i'm sure dancing the song is challenging the dancers leg muscles, but with a regular crow hop you are able to watch steps, style, bounce and endurance....

                              I love dancing single beat, I like dancing double beat. I love watching both though. Double beat is hard to control your movements!! Eeks! I look like a fool dancing double beat.

                                Differences Between "Regular" and "Crowhop"
                                by Guest
                                Ok, just wondering, what is if any are the differences between the "regular" fancy shawl dance, and the crow hop? :p

                                Well from my perspective, the crow hop to me, means you imitate the way a crow moves.. aiyee, am I just getting my foot stuck in my mouth?

                                Ok....the daughter and I are having a debate about jingle dancers dancing the crow hop.
                                What are your thoughts, feelings and/or comments on it???
                                I think it should be left to the fancy shawl dancers.
