    Ansuya teaches a sort of shoulder shimmy in her Hot Combinations video. I can't remember the name of the shimmy but you tilt back a little bit and move your shoulders like a shoulder shimmy yet it looks different.

    Don't whine, ladies. At least you aren't in danger of knocking yourself out or causing permanent damage to surrounding walls and furniture when you shimmy.

    for the words but for the feeling!

    I don't like the look of shoulder movements on me because with the protruding collarbones and veins, it looks more like an animated anatomical drawing from a medical textbook.

    I suspect it looks a lot prettier than you think, Indrayu. I've seen many thin girls dance and haven't thought "animated medical drawing" yet!

    I find the whole shoulder shimmy/bust shimmy thing confusing.

    I've seen so many belly dance teachers teach a shoulder shimmy by moving the shoulders alternately - yet when they do it at speed, I've yet to see one who actually uses her shoulders.

    By that I mean, none of them move their shoulders independently of the torso. If I asked them to hold a broomstick across their collarbone from shoulder to shoulder, it would sit flat throughout.

    Maybe that's because most Sydney teachers have learned from the same sources and I'm just not seeing a representative variety.

    Anyway, for me that kind of shoulder shimmy is best described as moving your shoulder blades alternately either side of your spine. If I slouch, I get a boob wobble - if I keep my shoulders down and back, I don't. And I'm a 14DD.
