Now dancing with your hips is Fan-TASTIC for you…
On the inside and out!
So fantastic actually, that I put together a list of…
My top 5 reasons to shake your hips and booty!
1. Dancing with your Hips feels really Good!
Rocking your hips to the beat of the music and freely shaking your booty when you dance, is truly a fantastic way to connect with your body, be totally IN your body, and feel alive and energized!
It’s fun! And it drops you right into pleasure with moving your body…
2. Look Sexy & Confident In Your Body…both On and Off the dance floor.
Dancing with your hips allows you to feel open, sensual, and free. Especially when you combine dancing with your hips with music you love!
Now your hips are controlled by your Core Muscles in your body, and these are the center of all movement in your body. When you connect with your core muscles and strengthen them through practice and play, you build sexy, hot posture!
And dancing with your Hips releases synovial fluid, and it’s a great way to lubricate your lower back, and feel more flowing and graceful when you sit, stand, walk…and of course dance!
Now feeling sexy and confident in your body while you’re dancing, also carries over to the rest of your day…and people will ask you what you’ve been doing differently lately!
3. Get Happy, Hot & Fit…by having Fun
Now you can get happy, hot, and fit with Dancing wherever you choose to get down: at a dance class, a club, a wedding, or even in your own kitchen at night…when you know a few key secrets about dancing with your Hips!
When you bend your knees when you dance, you dance in what I love to call the “African seated dance position.” It’s like doing squats the whole time you’re dancing, which is great for building muscle and burning fat in your body…
Plus, dancing is a great form of Cardio, because it happens in Intervals, meaning there are fast and slow periods, and starts and stops. If you want to get happy, hot and fit…then it’s all about moving like your ancestors: in Intervals.
Now all that oxygen you get from pumping your legs, working your hips to the beat of the music, feeling your heart beat and your lungs expand…you release happiness neurotransmitters in your body, like endorphins, dopamine, and serotonin…
4. Increase your Personal Magnetism & Vibrant Energy
And I believe that our Hips are the “Pleasure Center” in our bodies. And when you feel pleasure while you’re dancing, you’ll be excited to have more pleasure in your life too! Shaking your hips and booty is a great way to get your mojo flowing!
Plus, when you dance with your hips, you can attract new hotties or fan the flames in your existing relationships.
You simple need to mirror another person’s hips when they dance to start a “sensual dance conversation”…and have fun and ignite the chemistry between you…all without using any fancy dance moves or opening your mouth to say or word.
And studies in Jamaica have documented that confident dancers attract the best partners! Now how’s that for a sexy perk?
5. Enjoy More Community
Plus, Dancing with your hips and freely shaking your booty can be your ticket to more fun, adventure, and community in your life too!
And community, as it turns out, is an essential ingredient for health and happiness.
Shawn Achor, author of The Happiness Advantage, explains that most people are naturally drawn towards spending more time alone when they feel unhappy…
But through his research study with Harvard University students, he found that students who connected with new and old friends and actually enjoyed community experiences…had more resilience with daily stress and more happiness, too!
Now Dancing is a fantastic community experience. And when you feel confident dancing with your hips, you can have fun rocking the dance floor at a club, party, or wedding. And aren’t the hottest and most fun people at a club, party, or wedding usually on the dance floor?
And you can take a local dance class and meet very inspiring people here, too.
My hot tips for how to have the most fun at a local dance class:
A lot of people don’t try a local dance class because quite simply, they have no idea what to wear!
Now to feel great when you’re dancing, wear stretchy move-able clothes (and supportive undergarments)…clothes that you actually enjoy wearing!
This makes “dancing in the mirror” in dance class, and learning something new, a much more fun and sexy experience…ditch the baggy t-shirt and gym shorts and pick some clothes that help you feel hot when you move…Just adding a bright color that you love can do the trick!
Bring a big bottle of water and enjoy drinking it while you dance. And in most dance fitness classes, you will need some sneakers…sneakers without forward tread on them are best for your knees.
Go to dance class early so that you feel relaxed and excited when class starts. And be sure to dance in the front of the room! Now most new dancers head for the back…but try to get in the front so that you can see and learn faster…and feel the energy of the class!
Say hi and introduce yourself to people around you before class begins. Go up and introduce yourself to the teacher after class. Just come up with a question or compliment and go say hi!
And as you have fun dancing and connecting with other people, you’ll be inspired to dance even more. Now that’s very exciting!
Free Your Booty…And The Rest Will Follow!
Now Parliament and George Clinton have passed along the age-old wisdom, that if you “free your mind, the rest will follow.” And that’s fantastic advice…
But I know from experience that when you “Free your Booty” when you dance…you truly have the most fun dancing…
And when you turn on your “booty-shaking engine” you will want to shake it more and more and more!
Now “freeing your booty” is a skill!For some reason most of us squeeze our butts when we walk, and if you didn’t grow up with a “freed booty,” this can be a challenging task to master.
But when you’re able to learn it through PLAY, to be IN your body while you dance, and turn off your mind: lots of beauty, pleasure, health and happiness will be your gift in return!
