That is the "funky chicken" dance? I thought it was standard male-female folkdance fare. But, no, this sort of folk dance does feature a good bit of bird-courting behaviour. The hen just stands there with a bright eye and a saucy tilt to her beak, puffs her breast feathers and flips her "skirts" in an invitational manner. The male struts and capers about for her, puffs out his cheeks and flaps his wings, hoping to win her favour. I suppose that's what all those "funky chickens" are doing. I believe this cap ends with Frodo clasping his waistcoat lapels, a movement which resembles the chikcen-wing lifting of the elbows. But it is a very standard "guy" posture in country dances. Well, in U.S. ones, anyway. Cowboy dances have the men do that a lot.

Yes, his partner definitely has the "Pearl Took" look we have seen before, right in your icon (from the painting of the lass with the beautiful Frodo-ish lad on the swing).

You notice that we're all talking as if they're the real characters and not the actors. It's just too cool, that, isn't it? :D

They aren't the real characters?

They are completely real. *pets*

I have loved that "cute little hobbit-bint" for ages. Sigh; that is so me!

Really cool to learn about the lapel grasping and real-life funky chicken behavior. Strut, Frodo! Strut your stuff! *coos*

I don't know. One of the hobbit actors, but I don't know the name. Someone at TORN would know, I'll bet. :)

Re: actress name dancing with frodo

I'm afraid I don't know. I've never tried to find out her name. I'm glad she was cast, whoever she is. She worked well in the scene. :)
