Learn Belly Dance Step by Step from the Expert – For Beginners
How to move your hips like a Belly Dancer?
Now we’re going to go over the basic hip lift.
Let’s assume our basic belly dance posture position.
The legs are right under the hip bones.
Knees are bent. Lower abs tucked chest lifted arms out.
Now you’re going to bend the knees even more than before.
Focus on lifting one hip at a time by straightening one knee at a time.
So as you straighten the right knee the right hip will come up and it’s going to shoot straight up into your body so you want to think about meeting your hip bone up to the ribcage coming back down to Center.
Switching over to the other side straightening that knee coming back down.
Make sure that you’re keeping your heels on the floor and you’re not lifting up with any point.
Again lifting the hip up and back down to the neutral position.
The other side back down to the neutral position.
Now skip that hold in the middle and you’re going to go up and up and up and up.
The closer you are to the ground the easier it will be for you to find that isolation.
