rebolar, balançar


Explanation:
Olha só. O tipo de descrição aplicado no caso não casa bem com a definição proposta no urban dictionary. Uma pessoa que balança os quadris libidinosamente, tal como o trecho permite entrever, talvez: rebole, gingue, remexa os quadris. Requebrar ainda é uma palavra utilizada. Essas possibilidades me soam mais idiomáticas. Ela balançava o corpo para lá e para cá descrevendo um número oito. Porém, utilizar a palavra "figure-eight" na tradução vai soar forçado, se o restante não for bem executado.

agree  Ground Zero: Concordo! Acho que rebolar seria a opção que soaria mais natural nesse contexto.

Boa noite.
Uma possibilidade do movimento, ou ondulação, que a personagem está fazendo com os quadris no texto mencionado pode ser vista no link abaixo:

Aos meus olhos, digamos, isso parece ser um tantinho diferente do rebolado brasileiro.

bom trabalho, em final de Carnaval - Marid Gras!
