The shuffle is a shortened "nickname" for melbourne shuffle, an underground dance style which is predominantly danced to dance / electronica / trance music. Chicken shuffle is a type of shuffle that is performed by doing the shuffle with an added chicken-like wing flap. A variation of this can be performed by doing a "running man" Chicken Shuffle which works particularly well when dancing in a crowded area and more space that you have is desired, once space is obtained you can move to the original Chicken Shuffle.
That club was so crowded I had to use the Chicken Shuffle just to get gigin' space.
