Dribbling like moving with the ball is a skill that varies largely between most players although the basic principals will always be the same.
A good dribbler can be a real asset to the team when used well, this can vary from using it to draw a foul and win a penalty corner to creating space to allow a pass out of defence.
If you can start with the ball in the correct carrying position this allows the greatest movement of the ball both left to right and forwards and backwards. This last part is particularly useful as it can be used to draw the defender into committing themselves before moving in another direction.
An important part to note is that dribbling is primarily controlled by the left hand, the right hand should be used to guide the stick only with the left hand used for the turning.
As shown in the video below the standard dribbling style is for you to turn you stick 'over' the ball, however you can also dribble by turning the stick the opposite way 'inside'. Most players will have a preference but it is worth learning both.
Turning inside the ball tends to give shorter reach but makes it easier to use 3d skills particularly bouncing the ball off the pitch.
