Thrilled to be back on the Yallah Raqs podcast, this time talking about shimmies and strength! In this podcast episode, we discuss shimmies and the role strength plays when it comes to shaking those hips. There’s always something more to learn, layer, or experiment with when it comes to shimmies, so give it a listen. 🥰
Happy holidays, dancers!

I was delighted to be invited back again to talk with Tiffany on the Yallah Raqs podcast last month!
We chatted about Middle Eastern rhythms, and, especially for dancers like me who are guests in this culture, how we can train our ears to better hear and understand Middle Eastern music and rhythms, in order to better interpret the music with our bodies.
