    I had never heard of Double-Beat until last pow-wow season, and I was like, huh? What? I gotta learn that! Luckily, I was able to practice it a weeeee little bit before ThunderBoyz came to town and pulled one out on us, atleast I was able to fake it, I think....(Im from West Virginia folks, so, things move a little slower here). But, since then, I've gotten a few more double beats. and it still confuses the heck outta me, but, I'll eventually get it.

    I like em both, but, for now, Id have to say double, just cause its still kinda new for me.

    that's a little harsh, but I guess it does hurt (sometimes) to hear the truth.. LMAO:rofl2:
    I'm outta shape right now, but hopefully I'll get off my lazy butt, & do something about it:rtf: :bouncy: :22:

    I don't mind

    Well in actual fact...that double beat style used to be one of the original styles before fancy shawl got be so fancy. They used to dance like that and hold their shawls over there arm, and dance. Because remember....there just used to be traditional. Then the dance evolved. So this double beat style is one of the evolutions of the fancy shawl dance.
    I knew it...all the old stuff would start making a come back.

    Traditionaly the crop hop was just Heal toes switch( were one foots toes were on the ground the other foots heal was on the ground then you hopped up and switch to the other foots toes and the other foots heals) that looks the best, i think. but hey everyone has their own opinion


    :chief:

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

    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?
