    Hi All,We recently discovered that something our troupe have been doing for ages (flipping the camel walk) is not "a thing".  Another troupe told us that they did it a certain way, which they thought the correct way, but that we now hear is also not correct.  It seems the only time Camel Walk flips is when used as part of The Shell Game, is this correct?  Our troupe haven't learnt this yet, so will have to stop using this supposedly imaginary move until we do learn it.  I wonder whether there ever was a "flipping the camel walk" move before the Shell Game (which seems pretty new)?  People must have picked this up from somewhere?Thanks in advance for any clarification anyone can provide!  🙂

    We've been flipping the camel (which sounds rude) for years too. We do one in place, and then flip to the back for the second one.  In a duet, the back dancer can opt *not* to flip and dance facing in, and in a multi-sided audience the back dancer can take the lead from the flip.

    Manhattan Tribal has a combo where they flip the Camel; it's pretty much the only version I've ever used, although lately we've been experimenting with other ways to flip it,  without the M/T setup and cue.

    We've done it in choreography, in the past.

    Sorry for asking but what do you mean with “flipping the camel”? Is it mirrored?
