    I have a question about the fan. Is it mandatory for a jingle dancer to have a wing fan or can a regular fan do??
    I'd rather live on the side of a mountain than to wander through canyons of concrete and steel...

    i see the majority of jinglers out there with tail fans, so i'm guessing either one will do
    Don't ever stop dancing

        I agree. If you are dancing contemporary your best bet is a flat fan but a wing fan will do as well. If you are dancing old style jingle they dance without a fan or plumes in their hair and keep their steps to a very dignified shuffle of the feet changing the rhythm every now and then. The footwork must be balanced on both sides. I was taught to raise my hand on the honor beats in old style or keep my hands on my hips. In comtemporary you raise your fan on the honor beats.;) :Angel2

                    What kind of fan do you use if you use one, tail, wing, or other?? I prefer using a tail fan, and I see lots of other jinglers using tail fans, and others using the wing fans. Which do you prefer and/or use?

                    wing fans?

                    What do you think of wing fans? I've seen them being carried by a variety of dancers, including straight dancers. What types of fans do you all use? I prefer a loose fan with eagle feathers...

                    Favorite Fan work (movements) while dancing
                    by MrzDancerMom
                    What style or fan movement do you like when dancing with fan (if you dance contemporary that is) ...or like when watching other Contemp Jingle Dancers work their fun during the honor beat?

                    Do you like the on the beat fan movement or the graceful fan movement.....
                    Or just raise...

                    and preferences on the feathers used to make them, i'm planing on using turkey tails.
