    Default The two most important belly dance moves

    This is a "just for fun" thread. There is no right or wrong answer.

    Which belly dance moves do you consider the most important? Or, phrased differently, if somehow your body was forced to "forget" every belly dance move but you could choose two that your body could retain, which ones would it be?

    This will of course vary upon style and personal taste... I have my own two that, in my opinion, whole performances could be made up of. But I am going to wait for a few answers before I give my own. This forum has been a little slow lately, let's get some life going on here!

    Up/Down.

    Side to side.

    Hip circles ( big & juicy or small & neat) & of course the wonderful shimmy ( though there is the fall back when you can't think of anything else - the hip drop ... hmmmmm so hard to chose )
    Dance is like glitter, it not only colours your life, it makes you sparkle, you find it everywhere and in everything and it's near impossible to get rid of. (unknown)

    Wink

    MVM (Most-Valuable-Move) = Hip drop/lift.

    2nd MVM = undulation. It's versatile and works the other half of the body.

    Vertical hips - slow it is a rock, fast it is a shimmy, play with the timing and you have a hip drop.

    The other most important move would be a backwards horizontal hip eight - for the squishy bits.

    Backwards horizontal 8 and hip drops. I can get a long way on those. Though I guess too much layering would probably be cheating...

    Hip drops, and a smile.
