Cabaret Shimmy

Even if the ‘Cabaret Shimmy’ feels easy for you, it is best to start with ‘Hip Piston’ so that you maintain proper posture. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, feet parallel, pelvic tucked under, and most importantly, knees slightly bent. Don’t let your feet move. Now flex your right glute… hard! Did your knee on the right leg straighten? Allow the right knee to straighten slightly and the left knee to bend slightly, but try never to lock either of your knees. Keep them supple at all times. Now do the exact same thing on the left side. Flex left glute − release. Flex right glute − release. Flex left glute − release. Flex right glute − release. Notice how your knees are moving. Now, completely forget what you just read! Forget about the glute completely and just move your knees back and forth as fast as you can. That’s the ‘Cabaret Shimmy!’
