I’m not sure exactly how you use this move in Zumba, there are many forms of this move in different styles of bellydance. In our format, we call it hip bump, but it is also called pivot bump or choo choo if you are using it to travel. We don’t use our upper body to drive this movement, rather, keep both knees bent and push into the ball of the foot to bump the hip up. It’s important to keep both knees bent, and make sure one does not push themselves farther than they feel comfortable.

Thanka for htis breakdown, I am a Zumba instructor and we “try” to incorporate this move into class and I constantly get people who take belly dancing classes that I am doing it wrong. Should I be calling this move the Choo choo or Tribal move. I love how you use the stilettloo as a way to teach. My worry is someone will pop out their hip as I teach older women. Should I say to use their uper body to move them? Please help! I love your moves and teaching style!

THANK YOU for showing what goes on with the feet while you are doing these moves. Most videos omit that and when you are trying at home to do this stuff it really leaves you at a loss for what your actual positioning is supposed to be. Thanks again!

I encourage people to branch out and find the style that they fall in love with. All dance is wonderful!
