Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman/dances

Question
Tiffany, I was wondering if you can identify the dances throughout the show.
Thanks so much,
Kristen

Answer
Kristen,

Are you referring to the dances performed by the townsfolk or by the Cheyenne Indians? Or are you looking for the ones Michaela danced in Boston and in formal settings? There is a lot of dancing that took place in various forms. I'm not well-versed in the names of all of them, unfortunately. What I do know is the set directors and scriptwriters consulted the Smithsonian for accuracy to the time period, so you might try doing a simple Google search for popular dances in Boston, Colorado, and among the Cheyenne Indians in the 1860's or 1870's.

Hope that helps!

Expertise

I don`t know where to begin to describe my level of expertise and knowledge regarding the wonderful show: Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. I guess I will start from the beginning. I began watching the show with the first episode of the second season. With the help of friends, I discovered there was a first season, and they loaned me their tapes which has the episodes on them. I was hooked on the show from the beginning, and I never missed an episode! I now have every episode on tape (non-syndicated and uncut), and I have seen all of them at least three times. I have also been out to the set, where they film, and have met all of the cast and most of the crew who work on the show. I now have friendly relationships with several of those I met. There is no question I cannot answer, and if I do not know the answer right away, I can find it within a couple of days. Feel free to contact me and ask whatever question you would like, and I will do my best to get an answer back to you, promptly.
