Video Description: This concise shimmy practice trains the body to have impeccable timing and balance in the body. Henna will take you through several kinds of shimmies to help you find your optimal shimmy speed. All the shimmies will be put together into a condensed drill to a song that gradually speeds up in tempo, training your body to shimmy intelligently with the music and gain strong and relaxed shimmies in the upper and lower body. This class begins with a warm up and ends with a cool down.

So good!!!!! by Kathryn on 2/4/18

This is suuuuch a good class. I love your teaching style, Henna. As a beginner I find your classes break things down in a way that’s so accessible for me. Thank you!

Great shimmy Practice by Paula Stowers on 12/5/17

This is an excellent class for anyone that wants to perfect a relaxed juicy shimmy. Great class Henna!

Right/left ? by Sabrina on 6/27/17

What do you mean when you start on left side or right side? Should I always have a little bend in the knees? Like a micro squat? Thank you! And your an amazing teacher


Hi Sabrina, I mean that the right (or left) side will be going up on the first beat of the measure. So if you count it 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 and you are starting on the right, then your hips will go R-L-R-L-R-L-R-L. I hope that helps :)

Great training by Anna on 5/23/17

I really liked this video! Noticed some improvements in my shimmies at the end of it!! Thanks a lot :-)


That's awesome Anna, good job!

Yey ): by Milica on 4/30/17

So much skill and body & mind awareness is needed for this type of even, nuanced in tempo shimmies. Great practice. I've always been interested in Henna's approach to shimmying, so I was really glad when this workshop was released. I would also really like to learn on DO Henna's drum solo piece. (:


I have a drum solo for DO on the to-do list, Milica. I'm glad you enjoyed this practice :)
