Remember to start in dance posture:

  • Tailbone tucked under
  • Core tight
  • Feet 1-2 inches apart
  • Knees bent

This will make sure that you remain stable throughout your movements, it will also allow you to get the most of out of your movements.

Basic Hip Slide: Pull your hip in towards the center of your body; moving your hip from side to side pulling one at a time as far under your chin as possible. Be sure to keep your hips parallel to the floor. Imagine there is a string tied around your hips pulling them in towards the center of your body.

Do not focus on the hip that’s moving outwards, instead focus your attention on the hip moving in and under your chin.

Once you feel comfortable with this move you can try it while walking and shifting your weight from side to side as you step.

I’ve included a video tutorial below.
