The Melbourne Shuffle is a form of dance originating from Melbourne Australia. It's popular in the underground rave scene and is often performed to the sounds of most hard dance genres: Trance/Hard Trance/Hardstyle/Hard house.
The Melbourne Shuffle is a free form dance that can be best described as an organised freedom of movement. Shuffling (or rocking as coined by locals) is primarily a dance involved the feet rather than from the waste, and involves hitting the beat as well as the hat (2 stepping). Although looking quite complicated the shuffle is, at it's core, two simple steps. A side to side shuffling of the feet, and a 'running man' type action. Once these two movements are mastered a shuffler can incorporate anything they want to cater to there style. Hat tricks are commen tricks incorperated by shufflers.
In recent times thanks to events put on by pharmacy, Hard kandy, Bass station and PHD the shuffle has grown to a level that warrented the release of 'the melbourne shuffler documentry' and has seen a boom in its popularity, with shuffling becoming popular as far as malasia.
