If you perform for Western audiences, it's hard to get away with the never-ending shimmy sections, Egyptian-style, because the Western eye expects more movement from a dancer, and our Western dance is always footwork-driven. A strategy I want to play with today is using shimmy in bursts or splashes, so that you never go for more than 4 counts shimmying. We'll weave 2- and 4-count shimmy bursts into combinations rich in hipwork and footwork.
