Learn basic belly dance steps: hip lift and Shimmy video guidance.
Basic hip lift
- skip the hold in the middle between the hip lifts
- move it faster
- keep the heels on the floor
- make sure you are straightening only one knee at a time and the other remains bent.
- the direction of the hip lift should be vertical, not to the side. Think about meeting hip bone up to the ribcage.
- the closer you are to the ground, the easier it is to find the isolation and the lift is more beautiful.
