  • 2 or more singers, usually about 6-10, in the middle, water drum and horn rattles
  • Women sometimes join in the singing using the higher pitch
  • Dance is in a sideways motion with the lead foot stepping forward and to the side, then the other foot "catching up" to the other foot
  • At the change in beat, the dancers go in the other direction
  • Does not matter who takes the lead, but generally, it is the women who will get up and dance first
  • Can form more than one line and dance in opposite directions if desired
