In this 22-day on demand shimmy course you will not only learn the many various types of shimmies used within Bellydance, but also develop the strength and technique needed to help to dance them with confidence and joy.
This in-depth course is created to help you shimmy your best no matter what your preferred style of Bellydance.
What Students Say: "I'm loving it and how it progresses. The short format is perfect so I can add it into my daily practise. I know my shimmies will have improved by the completion of it," Jen, Seattle, USA.
What to expect: It's recommend to set aside 5-10 each day to work through the over 40+ sessions aimed at develop your technique as well as physical strength no matter what your current level of Bellydance is.
Are you ready to embrace your shimmy and take it to the next level? Then this is the right course for you!
Welcome to your best shimmies ever - and hopefully also to an amazing month of dancing.
The course, which I will also refer to as a challenge, is intended to get you practising little and often, and each lesson is therefore intended to be taken within a day, but please don't skip ahead and try to do several lessons in one go [unless you have completed the programme - in which case you will hopefully have acquired the strength, endurance and technical experience to do so].
Warming up is essential. Sometimes we think we may not have time, but skipping ahead to drill without warning up first is counter productive, as your muscles won't be as responsive and learning therefore won't be as effective...
Today we're continuing laying our shimmies onto other moves and look at a key exercise if you want to improve your overall strength and endurance.
Today we're looking at how to create travelling shimmies and also how to do them with a vintage touch.
Today we're only focussing on our drill so feel free to repeat it several times if you can. Using everything we've learned so far we'll explore hip slides, circles and figures of 8s layered with a beautiful constant shimmy all the way through.
Sometimes it can be difficult to stop and start your shimmies or even think of different types of shimmies on the spot. But what if you could improvise an entire drum solo just with shimmies?
Welcome to your final lesson where we'll put it all together in a 5-minute improvised drum solo.
