Shawls were carried for several different reasons. A Fancy Shawl Dancer is also known as a Butterfly dancer. Traditional women dancers would fold over their shawls, and carry them on their arm. Shawls were also used in some marriage ceremonies where the man would choose a shawl and drape it over the shoulders of the woman he chose to marry.
