      3. Once you’ve mastered this try the moves whilst travelling from side to side.

    • Ripple up & twist

      1. Standing on the spot, keep your feet hip-distance apart.
      2. Take a small jump and land into your heels and imagine this impact sends a ripple up the body, through the hips and when it reaches your chest, pop it out.
      3. As you do this twist your heels towards the left, then right then left again (for a count of 1/2/3) and repeat.
