Field Mouse: done by a male 2. Subtle Pelvic Thrust: done by women and men but mostly women Performing on Stage ~when people dance on stage it ’s hard to see everyone if you are in the audience (because they are in a circle) ~so they turn it into a line ~the moves are also exaggerated (they are more sensationalized) ex: pelvic thrust is more sexual=serves to excite the audience ~they start teaching this to kids in school (to go with th e idea of reviving and developing traditional dance) ~the downside of this is they don’t want the culture to be seen as too sexual
