Arm Undulations Copy

Breakdown & Drill

One of the truly quintessential gestures of Bellydance as we know it.  This rippling snake movement looks light and fluid, but it requires an incredible amount of strength in the arms to give it the effortless look which we want.  Each dance teacher will have a slightly different way to break this down based on their desired aesthetic.  Please listen carefully to the breakdown and feel free to take a stretching break in between if your arms get tired.  But use this drill as a strength building exercise.
