London: Singer/songwriter Shakira has been dancing to Arabic tunes when she was just four years old.

The `Hips don`t lie` hitmaker reckons that she realised that she could do such hip movements before she could read or write properly.

"I was four when I realised I could do those hip movements," the Sun quoted the Colombian charmer as saying.

"I loved Arabic rhythms. I danced like that every Friday at a school concert," she added.
