A bunch of puny little bitches (who like their pants so tight their balls squeeze out of the side pockets) flailing their arms around in a mockery of a mosh pit. I hate how these kids think theyre tough, they look anorexic and could be snapped in half with ease. Most of them have never even been in a real fight, and the ones that have either lost, or were fighting even more of a pussy then them.
Hardcore dancing looks like a special ed class on crack.

The practice of "hardcore dancing", more commonly referred to simply as "dancing" by those that can actually do it well, is performed at many hardcore/metalcore shows. There is no "flailing" at all in dancing, there's always control in it. Dancing is performed during the breakdown of a song (you better damn well know what a breakdown is). Two-stepping is performed during two-step parts in songs, these arent too hard to find, but two-step is a bitch to learn simply because you have to find the rythm and synchronize it with the movements (two-step works in opposition; ie: right arm/left leg, left arm/right leg, got it? good).
If you still dont understand what dancing is, go to a show and watch kids that know how to dance, then you'll know it's not fighting 'invisible ninjas' or any of that shit.
If I ever hear a kid say "hardcore dancing" at show, I will kick your ass because it's not fucking 'hardcore dancing'.

A group of douchbags who are "hardcore" usually meaning they're suburbian parents won't buy them a car or ipod so they go take their aggression out on friction in the air. Hardcore dancing was originated by a homosexual act called the hardomonous coramonous where the same type of people do the same types of moves only naked and with foreign objects being put into eachothers rectal cavities while playing loud senseless music and interupting peoples enjoyment of the show.
-Hey you going to the hardomonous coramonous later?

-No i'm gonna go to a concert and do it with my clothes on.

-Oh thats cool lets call it hardcore dancing because it "looks" like we're dancing.

A form of dancing often seen at hardcore shows (hence the name "hardcore dancing.")
It features rather violent, frenetic moves emphasizng punching, kicking, and spinning.
Originating in the Boston scene of the mid-1990s, hardcore dancing is an evolution of the punk/ska dance called skanking. After a while, hardcore kids decided that two-stepping around in a circle was stupid, especially if the person in front of you was going really slow. Thus, they began to form a pit around a few individual dancers, who would proceed with said acrobatics for 30 seconds or so, before rejoining the crowd (hardcore dancing is only possible in short bursts, if it's done right).
Hardcore dancers often form crews that frequent shows together. Crew dancers are often fiercely competitive and rather elitist.
In scenes such as New York, the dancing is very style-based and exclusive, and the kids look after each other (i.e. when somebody falls or gets hit). In scenes like Philly and Jersey, the dancing is also very exclusive, but the dancing is extremely violent, and injuries and fights are more common. On the West Coast, the dancing is style-based as in NYC, but not nearly as exclusionary.
Hardcore dancing is often looked down upon by certain punks and hardcore purists, who think its silly, and favor more communal dancing. However, they are full of shit and should be spin-kicked in the face, just so they know how silly it is. It takes more skill, anyway.
Two-step: One foot swings around in front of the other and replaces it. The other foot swings around and replaces the first foot, and so on and so forth. Done stylishly with arm swings.

Windmill: Arms swing all the way around, opposite each other.

Floor punching: Punch straight at the (you guessed it!) floor, alternating hands and bringing up elbows all the way, and stomping the opposite foot.

Spin kick- Spin a full turn extending the inside foot in the middle of the rotation, ninja-style.

Throw: Reach elbow straight back, then throw kinda sidearm-style, while crouched and stomping like hell on the floor. Usually only done with one hand.

Arm swing: One arm goes from side-to-side in front of you very rapidly, while the other hand is behind your back, over your face, grabbing your belt buckle, etc. Done while stomping on floor.

From the Latin to suck at everything (Hardcorus Danci), something Emo kids try to do instead of crying to seem Bad ass.
Did you guys see that guy hardcore dancing? He probably hates his upper middle-class suburban home and the SUV his parents bought for him, that's why he's angry.

Hardcore Dancing is a bunch or retards punching and kicking air. It's laughable. Yeah you gotta be in shape to do it and it hurts like hell to get hit, but it looks retarded. I love going to shows to mosh rather than flail my arms around to nothing.

Hardcore Dancing sucks and I hate going to hardcore concerts because of it.
Shit i'm going to a Throwdown concert. I guess everyone will look really angry and try to hurt everyone in the name of a fun time and 12 bucks spent. Fuck that shit.
