Do you ever feel like...

  • "My shimmies get stuck sometimes"
  • "I don’t have as much control as I’d like over the speed or size of some of my shimmies"
  • "I wish layering with shimmies felt more effortless"


Do you just love to shimmy and want to practice and learn new techniques, layers and combos?

Well, you're actually in luck! Because helping folks improve their relationship with shimmies is something I happen to be very good at.

Yes! This is EXACTLY what I need!

Here's what I used to think...

I remember a time where I was so frustrated with my shimmies, that I was saying to myself “𝘮𝘢𝘺𝘣𝘦 𝘐’𝘮 𝘫𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘬𝘪𝘯𝘥 𝘰𝘧 𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘰𝘯 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘤𝘢𝘯 𝘥𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵“.

Don't believe the hype. Even for a moment.
Turns out that practicing shimmies is just like practicing anything else. You keep at it and the progress happens. With the right practice tools, you'll become more relaxed and those rewarding "aha moments" of new understanding will show up for you.

I've created a new dance almost every
week for the past 3+ years. And, they allll have lots of beautiful, relaxed shimmies.

With this much experience, I know exactly how to help you learn and improve.

What will you get from this course?

In this prerecorded video course, you'll learn my tried and true methods of taking the stress and intimidation out of your shimmies.
I'm going to make this practice such a good time for you - that you'll fall in love with your shimmies again and again.
We'll start with the basics and move through to advanced layering and traveling skills. We'll tackle everything from your hip shimmy to your 3/4 traveling shimmy to the elusive belly flutter.
The video course consists of 3 - 1 hour long classes, so you can do it ALL in one go or break it up and move at your own pace.
You'll definitely want to practice with this course over and over again.

Here's what you'll gain from Shimmylicious:

✔ You'll improve your relationship with your shimmies

✔ You'll learn new strategies to effectively practice and improve your shimmies

✔ You'll feel more RELAXED when you layer and travel with a shimmy
✔ You'll learn some great combos that incorporate shimmies to inspire your OWN dances
✔ With practice, you'll get your shimmies closer to HD quality
I can't wait to show you how joyful and gratifying it can be to enjoy your shimmies. This is one of my favorite movement categories, and I want you to feel JUST as good about them.
I'm SO READY to start!

What students are saying...



Ebony is really positive and encouraging without being fake or overly sugary about it. The focus is on improving strength and ability, not physical appearance. Exactly the style of teaching I like.

I appreciate that, across all her classes. she is always focused on maintaining proper form and posture, and how muscle memory can work for us or against us. She always offers some really fantastic tips and reminders to add to our dancer toolkit.

Ebony is a brilliant instructor and what I love most is the body inclusivity that is weaved into her teaching style. Beyond that... this is what she loves to do and that good juju rubs off on us.
