Re: Rumba hip movement help Posted by belleofyourball 11/30/2012 12:13:00 PM
SO let me start with what I assume is the mistake you are making...as everyone does....the movement does not come from your hip....your core engages and it is the movement of your abdominal muscles...your obliques in particular that create the movement. It is finished off by the settling action of your hip which arises from the proper use of your feet and straightening action of your knees. Its an illusion...the hip movement...it is a byproduct of doing the rest of everything the right way.
As to the turns...make sure the action begins where it is supposed to...at your shoulders...and practice, practice, practice.
