Shoulder Rolls with UTS Dance Society

It's time to bust a move with the Dance Society. Join us this week as they show us to do a shoulder roll which is often used in lyrical or contemporary dance choreography. It’s simple to learn and easy to progress to challenge yourself!


Just yourself!


  1. Sit on the ground with your knees up and feet flat on the floor.
  2. Rock backwards onto your back whilst placing your right hand above your shoulder, on the floor, and your left arm out to the side.
  3. Look towards your left hand and swing your legs up and behind your head.
  4. Land on your knees, or progress to straight legs or split legs. (Easy to do it fast as you can use momentum.)

Boogie down with the Dance Society in session 2!
