    Default what is this she's doing?

    YouTube - Bellydance Class Choreography 2007

    what shimmy is in the time between .59-1.05? its too fast for me to see how many bumps per step. i only thought you could do the 3/4 shimmy that fast.

    oh my elusive shimmy, i think all my questions have pertained to shimmies.

    before long i will start using the word inappropriately, shimmy, shimmy, shimmy, shimmy this, shimmy that, shimmy you. oh boy.

    I think that actually is a 3/4 shimmy, or Egyptian walk as I'm used to call it (or aren't those the same? ).
    But I'm only dancing for about 1.5 years, so I could be entirely wrong.

    It looks like the 3/4 shimmy to me too.

    Moon, in regards to the egyptian walk v's 3/4 shimmy, the way I have heard it referred to is that the egyptian walk is the base hip down walk without the shimmy over the top. With the shimmy it becomes the 3/4 shimmy or shimmy walk. I think this is probably another one of those regional/instructor definition differences though and wouldn't be surprised to find the same moves are called something completely different or the same names referring to completely different moves from instructor to instructor.

    Moon, I have also been watching her clips for the last few days...She is easy to follow and easy to learn from. Does anyone know who she is?

    i love Cassiopeia. for me she has been an excellent source for belly dance moves. right now i am trying to learn the above choreography.

    she has a 7 minute drum choreography, allegedly beginner level , but i am not there yet.
