How to Do Small Hip Circles in Belly Dancing

Let belly dancer Irina Akulenko teach you how to do small hip circles in this belly dancing video from Howcast.

So now let’s try a smaller exterior hip circle. Stepping once again underneath your hip bones, knees are slightly bent, we’re going to push the hips out to the side, forward, left and back. And right. And forward. And left. And back. And this hip circle is a little bit smaller than the one we did earlier. You want to keep the hips moving, smoothly, chest lifted. Let’s try that with music.

Let’s try going the other direction. Remember to keep the knees slightly bent, chest lifted, arms relaxed. And faster. And that’s how you do a small hip circle.
