“Belly Dance” Version of Wobble Hustle Line Dance – Warm Up Exercise

Here is Kendra Ray’s “belly dance” version of the Wobble Hustle. It uses movements found in cabaret, tribal, and fusion bellydance with a little freestyle dance thrown in for variety. Use this as line dance as an out-of-the-box warm up or exercise for belly dance class to get students socializing and having fun!
