It is a dance of pride and dignity, which allows a significant amount of individual expression. There is no set choreographic patterns, but is quite active and very exciting to watch.
The Jingle Dress is not only very colorful, but furnishes much of the musical accompaniment for the
dance. Long, tubular cones form a fringe-like decoration which "jingles" as the dancer moves. Few
dances can match the sheer brilliance of costume and sound of the Jingle Dress Dance.
