As hip movements are so important in belly dance, we begin this episode with several hip-opening stretches, both seated and standing. Attaining flexibility in these joints will allow you to not just dance, but walk, run, and play with more grace and fluidity. The moves from the teaching section represent some of the best-loved Middle Eastern dance moves like the ‘Head Slide’ and the ‘Hip Circle’: moves that impress audiences. Mastering the moves in this episode, including the ‘Egyptian Figure Eight’ and the ‘Turkish Bump,’ will make you a truly international dancer. Are you ready to make your belly dance performance debut?
