    Default Names of travelling steps?

    I posted this on Bhuz as well. Are there names to a lot of travelling steps? If so, I am unaware of them (and that wouldnt surprise me, more and more I am coming to find all the things I never learned but should have in this dance- thank goodness for the internet and youtube).

    Anyway, all I can come up with is "Egyptian Walk' and then I have to get creative.

    Maybe I was just never tought specific names? Thanks for your help.

    We should start a glossary of tavelling steps. And I'm going to add Yalla Hip (inward twist forward with upper body twisting in opposite direction, then back on supporting leg) I'm not very good with the descriptions sorry.

    Basic walk, Moroccan walk, cobra, gliding walk, Yemenite step, any number of traveling turns...

    I've got a feeling we're running into vocabulary challenges here. I have heard what I call basic walk also called Egyptian walk, for example.

    Oh yeah Shanazel, There are infinite variety of ways to travel ,but some of them will have the diferent names. How about describing the step a little and it's level of difficulty?

    Could you elaborate on Yemenite step Shanazel? I 've been on a Yemeni kick, ever since I started learning the Yemenite Hebrew
