Default Melbourne Shuffle

Anyone on this forum do the Melbourne shuffle?

For those who don't know, it is a popular dance in Melbourne, Australia. Using a two-step movement called the 'Running-man" along with other movements. It was made I think in the 70s. But became more known and popular in 2001, and even more popular in 2007.

You usually dance to this to hardstyle techno. But sometimes can be done in trance, gabber, dance and other electronic music.

Now, so you guys don't get confused. Heaps of people started doing battles and started making crews so they can 'duel' each other. This however isn't what the dance was all about. This caused havoc and confusion of what the dance was really about. Many "true" shufflers call the others TB's (teeny boppers).

Okay, now for simplification:
battles and showing off = GAY and try hards.


So now you have a grasp of the melbourne shuffle.
There is a popular website on the internet, htt://www.melbshuffle.com
It's a forum where people around the world that shuffle go to.
I got permanently banned from the site though..but that's a long story...

Here are some videos:





I also do this dance too, I had a vid on YouTube but removed it. I might put it back up later.
Now, go, do the shuffle and have some fun! Introduce it to your family and friends.
PARTY ON! XD

I'm not gonna lie, if I saw someone doing that I'd probably back hand them.


There are 6 types of dancing I approve of: Grinding, slow dancing, jumping, hard-core dancing (funniest if you do it while playing instruments), suicide trombones, and conga lines.

Trust me.
Clubbing = dance, music, sex and drugs.

The Fantastic Four Combination.

Well, that's around your area
And I don't know a whole lot about clubs. But mate, let me tell you that forum I was apart of tells you a lot that you need to know.

lol.. a forum tells you nothing, wait til you go out properly yourself, if you dance like that.. around here anyway.. you will have the cr@p beaten out of you.. ive been out plenty of times, it is good fun as long as you dont get in a fight..

yeah, my area isnt the nicest.. but ive never had any problems around here.. seen some good fights though ive always prefered going to proper concerts than clubs though.. cant beat a bit of metal.. slipknot was great at the start of the month
