New belly dance move! How to do a hip drop circle

Ask and you shall receive

Hello and welcome to this week’s blog! Today I’m taking on board a request for some belly dance technique, so let’s get to it.

I’ve been asked for some technique on hip drop variations, specifically a hip drop circle.  I happened to be watching some Fifi Abdou just the other day and I caught her doing this move and it looked incredible! Think juicy, earthy and luscious with this one.

Here’s my express, step-by-step tutorial on how to execute this move with ease.

Thank you so much for joining me for this week’s tutorial, be sure to leave me a comment on YouTube to let me know what you think!

Your Assignment

Once you’ve got the hang of this move, experiment with other hip drop variations and see if you can create your own hip drop combo.
