How to Do a Traveling Reverse Undulation in Belly Dancing

Let belly dancer Irina Akulenko teach you how to do the belly dance move known as the traveling reverse undulation in this Howcast dance video.

Now let’s try a reverse undulation and make it travel. So, keeping the knees bent, we’re gonna try the reverse undulation stationary first, contracting the lower abs, dropping the chest down, lifting it back up. We can connect some footwork to this as well, so we’re gonna step the right foot and then the left foot. Stepping in the right, stepping in the left. As you step on the right, you’re going to contract the lower abs in. Contract the chest down. Lift the chest up, stepping back on the left foot. So, contracting in. Chest up. Step right. Step left. Step right. Step left. And right. And up. And right. And up. Step right. Step left. Let’s try that with music.

Try it on relevance, we’re gonna come up on toes. Step. Step. Step right. Left. Right. And try faster. And you can travel with it from side to side. And you can switch the feet as well. Circle left.

So that’s how you step and travel with the reverse undulation.
