    I've been taught that that move is the "smimmy walk" or the Egyptian shimmy - must be a regional teacher thng. I like how relaxed she is and that she doesn't overdo the moves. She looks as if when she's dancing it's is the easiest thing in the world.

    Hi Charity,
    The move that I am doing is a 3/4 shimmy. However... my students are instructed to do whatever shimmy they like best. So, if you are not comfortable executing a 3/4 shimmy, then do a different one.
    It's all about reducing performance stress and having fun.
    Have a great day,
    Cassiopeia

    Thanks Mouse and Charity! She is great to learn from! Funny how you can learn these moves over the internet...Just think, 10 years ago, one could not learn belly dancing this easily...Even by DVD's! Technology is amazing!

    Yay - Cassiopeia! I love your clips, especially all those lovely controlled shimmies... wish I could de-stress about them but nothing I do seems to make it any easier. Egyptian walk? no probs. Shimmying over a horizontal figure 8? In my dreams...

    was just teaching this today... the secret to shimmy-ing over the horizontal figure 8=.... keep those heels ON the ground.... & the 8 totally
    horizontal.... then start with a real slow even rythymic shimmy.... only go as fast as you can... keeping it rythymic.... then SLOWLY build up speed... do this every time you brush your teeth!!!
    does this make sense???
