Fancy Shawl Dance

Elaborately beaded capes, moccasins and leggings are complemented by beautifully embroidered or decorated long fringed shawls. The colorful outfits match the spirited twirling and prancing of this exuberant dance.  The dance itself is a combination of intricate footwork that is choreographed extemporaneously in response to the beat and tone of the music form the drum and singers.  The appropriate style of this dance is one of a constant whirl of beauty and grace, rather than wild movements. In addition to style and footwork, judges will look for endurance, agility, and a good measure of showmanship.
