My name is Jamal Cumberbatch. I'm Wilson Hong. And we are choreographers from the Eternity Dance academy. You can also check me and the other choreographers at So today were going to be teaching you Tutting are you ready? I am let's go. Waving in tutting. So, I'm going to tell you a little bit about the wave. Waving is basically having the illusion of snaking movement. Like a wave that you see in the ocean. That's a wave, but if you were to be able to use it in your fingers and your arms and your body you're creating a huge tsunami. And that's what you want to do. Focus your mind on waving your body. Body roll from there if you want to go through a whole body roll if you want to start from your feet, knees, hips, wrists, elbows, shoulders. Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. And that's a body transfer in a wave. So, if I wanted to use my chest and say if I was going 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, then I'm going to have the whole body roll with the arms and shoulders. Create those motions then you're going to have really nice flow in your ocean. Clean, intro cut, and great isolation. You see where he's only moving certain parts of his body, but the rest of the bodies not moving so the hands could moving, but you don't see the legs or the feet all together at one point, but then you will see the waves being created with his hands. Basically, if you're able to go from the wrist to the elbows to the shoulders. You work on those. Popping the wrist, popping the elbow out, and popping your shoulders out you're going to be able to have fluid form in your dance movement. That's going to be able to create the wave.
