It talks about the different kinds of shimmies we can do, variations, layers, relating them to the music and the emotional statement, etc. Shimmy is one of the most versatile of movements and can be as big or as little as the music allows. It is so difficult for me to talk about movement without showing you on our bodies.... please forgive me and I hope this did not just make things more frustrating.

    Exactly! Listen to the music.

    That is very good to read! This is also what I learnt but I began to wonder whether that was how to do it or if it was a modern, westernized take on the shimmy. Nice to be reassured that you learnt something right and also nice because it makes sense to do it after the music. Now... all I need is to be able to do it in all kinds of different ways.
