    get what Im saying .... Be the teacher.
    Be descriptive. Tell us exactly how you move the move. That way we understand better because we cant see you . waiting anxiously
    oh dear....i'm afraid i suck at teaching lol! i think this youtube is a great way to show you tho

    I didn't think glute shimmies involved a weight shift as in the second video. That looks just like ordinary hip snaps where you involve the glutes to make it sharp. I'm having a hard time getting the glute thing to make a shimmie. Not that I neeeed to know this move but I'm a bit curious. I can squeeze each glute separately and pretty fast, but there is no movement other than on my backside.

    Hi All,
    Just a question I can do a variant of what I presume you mean by a 'glute shimmy' i.e vibrate my butt using my glutes through my experience with hip hop/ragga music and dance however I have never used it in Belly dance because I felt it was too much like the moves done in Ma3alaya, am I wrong in thinking this??

    Question Calling anatomy/shimmy experts!

    My imaginary bellydance skeleton is back....

    Question for the shimmy experts: twisty shimmies aside, are the bones doing basically the same movement in the knee, thigh or glute varieties (hips go up and down while the centre stays put), but the movement is just being generated from a different place?

    And the different effects come from the muscle groups moving the bones at slightly different angles and different bits working vs. wobbling? Imagine a slow motion 3D x-ray where you can only see the bones - subtle differences of angles aside, would all three look basically the same? Pelvis see-saw'ing and legs bending and straightening?

    Dunno if I'm explaining this well but it would REALLY help me get my head round it and focus on controlling what I'm doing instead of making like a frantic jelly.

    i can only speak from studying other forms of dance, but....i would think so as giving emphasis (on the down move, on the up move, etc) would then give that same movement a different look. just guessing here.....would love to know what the experts say too

    Who originated the glue shimmy? Is it American or Middle Eastern?

    Default Chiftetelli and zills

    Dear Nur,

    It was nice to see you dance! I liked your shimmy From the video it’s hard to see the movement in detail, is this a hip shimmy partly driven by the knees? Whatever it was it looked nice though!

    Strictly speaking, we are not supposed to play finger cymbals with the chiftetelli rhythm. Having said that, Elsa Leandros uses this beautiful pattern: 123 1 123 1 123 1 123 123 123 for slow chifti.

    And also, I have discovered old greek recordings from the 1920s where zills are used with slow chiftetelli following the triplet pattern (123 123 123).
