    "Washing machine shimmy" confused me for ages till I realised - it all depends if your washing machine is a front or top loader! . .

    I haven't heard this called a baladi shimmy but I have heard it called a folk shimmy or a Sa`iidi shimmy. It is the "standard" Sa`iidi shimmy. I've also heard it incorrectly called a "ghawazee shimmy" - incorrect because the ghawazee move is a side to side (ie sliding not twisting) reverb.
    My feeling is that any type of up/down movement will affect the legs in some way, even if the movement is coming from the abs. I personally find the twisting doesn't affect the bending/straitening of the legs, thus making it easier to walk, but to each her/his own!

    That's very interesting about the Sa'iidi shimmy. It makes sense.

    Yes but there is a world of difference between a loose legged hip waist/hip drive movement and a powerful leg driven pushing motion
