Another Weekly Challenge!
It’s Monday; time to be challenged!
This week is a bit different. We’re going to stretch our brains a little bit and get creative, and I’m not going to give much guidance.
How many shimmies do you know?
So? How many? Two? Three? Eight? Make a list and count them up.
In addition to practicing those shimmies every day this week, we’re going to see if we can discover others. What can you do with your shimmies? Stand on one leg? Try shimmying with different parts of your body. Can you shimmy just your quadriceps muscles? See what you can do with your shimmies, get creative, go wild, and have fun. Coming up with fun shimmy or movement variations is how you start separating yourself from other dancers; it’s your personal style. Just practice every day, explore a little bit every day, and make sure that you always relax into those shimmies.
Shameless plug: Clueless about shimmies? Want to learn more? I’m now offering workshops, and a shimmy workshop is one of them! You can check out my available workshops here. If you are interested in hosting a workshop by me, please contact me at kamrah (at) tattooedbellydancer (dot) com
