  • Favorite Side step style

    Just wondering what everyone thought about the different styles of Slides. Do you guys like the more tradish flat footwork or the fancier on the toes slide? and why?
    I personally love the flat foot side step. Looks real graceful, especially if its done really confident.

              i like dancing flat b'cuz it just looks like a lot smoother when i watch some gurls do tha side step on their toes it looks like they are sizors and cuttin up tha arena....but then iagian i gues it matters who is doing it and what they wanna do.....

                I agree BubbleTrouble, it just looks like a bunch of hokey stuff, lol. There was this one girl who was in teen jingle, and her sidestep was deadly! She was on her toes the whole time, and was doin the washboard (lol, mind you she did it gracefully). And then there was this other girl who just kept criss-crossing her feet, which was kind of, well you know.

                    I do the flat foot...you know with the little bounce. There's nothing like alittle "junk in the trunk" to get all those cones moving
                    I'm not mean....You're just a sissy

                          Flat footed.
                          You can go the jingle dress gallery and watch the video from the National Powwow from this year. They did an exhibition on each category, orginal style, :)
                          I hope that helps.

                              I like it when they do it flat footed but when they are on their toes amazes me the most. It makes it very interesting to watch.

                                Just curious to know how yall fancy shawlers do your spins. Do you change your arms or kick while you spin.. or what do you do during honor beats?

                                beading on paper.
                                by Eagle Plumes
                                My question is if you bead on a piece of paper with the design you want on it is there a chance of little pieces of paper comming up threw your piece? I like the idea of doing it that way cause it would save me a couple of steps from the way i do it. now but not really likeing the thought of the paper...
