In the old days, dancers would prepare an area for a ceremony by dancing, and stomping the grass down to prepare it. There was also a legend of a young man who couldn’t walk, and one day while in a field he heard a drum beat. He started to move his feet, then his legs, and then he started to slowly work his way up. He eventually was dancing mimicking the grass that was blowing in the wind. So, Grass dancers will usually have a lot of fring on their outfits.
