Well, we had Shimmy for a little while. Now for some reason we have to order Fit TV. I still have a couple recorded on the DVR tho! Yayee!

Sorry Valsped-I don't combine them. Can you do that? Maybe Rachel Brice can-lol
As far as I know these are separate moves. But as I've said before I am not a professional so I can't be certain.

Take good care
Pam :)

I finally did one of the episodes I have on DvR!! I had a hard time with the shimmy while doing other moves, but I am tired from just trying to keep up and do the figure 8 or hip circles/steps without the shimmy at the same time! Any advice on combining the 2?

After reading this thread I looked the show up and it looks great! I don't have cable, so I looked for the show on torrents. I found the first 15 episodes! So if you use torrents just look up Shimmy!

If you don't have FitTV and want some good bellydance workout videos go to www.shira.net, she has a list of instructional videos and reviews for many different options.

I have been working out to that and for some reason I found it very easy to follow along with (maybe because I all ready know belly dancing moves). I find myself working out to them for all most 2 hours since I tivo the episodes. I recommend it because the direction is very good. I love the maya hips, grapevine, turkish bump, egyptian figure eight, and working candle stick. I am having a blast and am about to do a fun class with some of my friends.

How funny! My 20 month old daughter also loves to dance along! She'll be doing great but then, like yours, she'll want to climb on mommy. She's doing it less though, so there still may be hope! When the Shimmy show comes on, she yells "Shimmy!!!!" When I come home from class she always wants me to put a coin scarf on her and she dances.

I turned on the all star workout bellydancing episode with only 5 minutes left. I didn't do anything but it was so cute watching my 2yo DD run into the living room and start moving her hips and hands. She really loves to dance! I'll have to put on my DVDs and see if she will do it along side me. Usually when I put on my walking tapes she tries to climb all over me and I can't get anything done.

I love doing the Shimmy show, too! It's out on dvd now, I'm hoping to get it soon. They sell it online from a website for the show. http://www.shimmy.tv

I'm trying to get back into belly dancing on a regular basis. It really helps to loosen up the spine after sitting all day.....What a relief!

Okay, so I overslept by a few minutes this morning, so I didn't have time to do the whole thing, but I got through the shoulder shimmy, and the hip circles, both lifting and dropping. I'm really excited, because before these were moves that I had no clue how to do, so now I have three new moves to practice all day today! The biggest thing I'm trying to figure out is how to keep my elbow anchored while shimmying my shoulders.

I'm tivoing Shimmy as well. So far I think it is pretty good. These shows/dvds always help me pause and try to perfect a move that I can't get in class.

I DVR'd it to do for my workout tomorrow morning after DH leaves for work. I did watch bits and pieces of it, though, and the M&M's are basically small hip drops that first you drop it towards the front, then in the middle, then in the back and then back to the center. I'm excited to try it tomorrow morning. :D

I was looking through the online guide and found this show called "SHIMMY" on Fit TV. I guess it's new and regular time for it is Tuesday nights at 8pm. It seems to be for someone who has the basics already. I tried it but didn't know what an "M&M" was and couldn't quite figure it out. The episode I tried worked on grapevine, graceful hands, M&M, and hip drops with a foot circle (not the "real" name). I had fun but got really confused. I think I'm still too new to this. At least with the DVD's and tapes I can go back over and over until I get it. I think I really need to take a class with a real person who can answer my questions and critique my technique. Don't have money for that right now. Off-track a little, sorry, back to topic.

Just wanted to let everyone know about this new show on Fit TV.
