So here's another move that I see woman doing a lot, both in sabar dance and in ballock dancing in the clubs, it's very sensual, very suggestive, and it just involves a lot of hip motion, a lot of leg movement. So we're just going to work on the legs first. Your going to kind of be on the balls of your feet, and you want your knees moving in and out, in a jutting, jutting in and out fashion, just like this. If you want to think- musicians, if you want to think musically, you can think, 1 and 2 and 3 and 4, in a quarter note, 8th note, kind of 4/4 meter. Or, it can also go faster, and more of a 16th note motion, with the accent being on the outward, and that takes a little more practice. But if you start slow, kind of add a little bit, you learn to add the hip thrust in. You can expose as much of your mid section as you want. If you get more comfortable, you kind of want to play with your clothes, and woman usually like to put their hands here, kind of show off the hip thrusting motion, side to side. You see this in a lot of emballock dance videos, which they call video cleeps in French, side to side, with a little bit of thrusting in there. So again, it can be in an 8th note, it can just be, 1 and 2 and 3 and 4; 1 and 2 and 3 and 4. Or it can be faster to go with the drum beat. So again, practice it slow, build your way up. As you build confidence, it depends on how much skin you want to expose woman, by lifting your shirt, you don't have to lift your shirt, it just depends on the kind of confidence you have as a dancer, and what you want to portray to your audience.
