    Shimmies at the bus stop, belly rolls while on the bus, left-hand-ripples while brushing teeth and chest circles while on the phone
    I'm going to try the 5 minute non-stop shimmying tip though, I still feel I could use a lot more control.

    Well if we're all going to be confessing when we randomly practice dance... I shimmy walk on my toes or egyptian walk when walking most everywhere in my room or in my suite, mayas and drop kicks while on the phone, chest isolations while sitting down at desk working, really really little chest isolations when sitting in class, hip circles while washing dishes, whatever I feel like when room cleaning, and of course, shimmies in the shower It really does make boring things a lot more pleasant! I think my room is cleaner now that I dance while I clean

    Hi Loubna, Well your English is much better than my Dutch!

    Hey guys I keep seeing the term Egyptian Walk, what is it? Can someone describe it? I think I know what it is,but by another name.

    The egyptian walk (the way I've been taught anyway) is a hip down walk where you lower the hip as as you step forward. You can then layer a shimmy over the top of the walk. I was told once by a teacher (not mine) that there are many walks/variations that have been taught as the egyptian walk so what I've learnt may not be what everyone else knows.

    The Egyptian Walk I was taught is this one: [Basic Egyptian or Step-Touch].

    I randomly practice anywhere and everywhere I can: belly and shoulder rolls whenver seated (at my desk, on the train), shimmies, mayas and fig-8's whenever standing (on the train, washing dishes), shimmy walks around the campus, trying to layer and dance while waiting on the train platform!
