The body wave is a move we are all constantly working on, no matter your level of dance. There’s always room for improvement! And the more you do it, the better you’ll be. So here’s a bomb playlist of smooth songs to practice your body wave to! Do it in the car when a song comes on the radio, do it at home when you’re watching Netflix, do it at the grocery store or do it at work! Well, maybe keep it more appropriate at that last one. We don’t all work at a dance studio where that’s a normal thing to see.
Like any dance or movement, practice is essential. Take your time to become comfortable with each part of the body wave, and gradually increase the fluidity of the motion. With regular practice, you'll develop a graceful and mesmerizing body wave that adds a touch of elegance to your dance or performance.
