Hardcore dancing is something that gets confused with scene dancing alot. Pretty much everybody here described HC dancing as what scene dancing is: Pussy scene kids trying to hardcore mosh. I don't blame anyone for thinking its lame and weak as shit.

Hardcore dancing barely consists of "kicks and punches". It is a style of mosh done while a hardcore band is playing there set. It is all about maximum energy output. If you saw real HC dancing, you would not call it pussy.

This is how it works:
1. The band starts playing a song on the stage.
2. People line up perpendicular to the stage (on each end).
3. They start charging at each other and provoking others around then to join in.
4. The walk/run across the floor is done with alot of agressivness. There are some moves done here such as whiping your arms behind your back, sliding your feet around, busting out, stretching forward then retracting immediatly, etc.
5. The song gets going. A fast beat is playing, and there is some slight mosh going on. Then the song really gets going and the stage dives begin. There are pile up, sing alongs, varieties of jumps.
6. Then there is a breakdown in the song. Everyone stops and start two steppin. It gets heavier and there is more agressive two steppin, and also some stage steppin.
8. Back to the fast part.
9. Now it's time for the throwdown. This is what scene kids try to copy but end up doing it pussy style. It's like a breakdown but alot heavier. People tend to get low and sing their arms in beat to the song. If you saw a real throwdown you would never mention pussy around hardcore again.


Then is more random 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, etc. throughout the set. There are definalty alot of HC dance moves, but none of which are pussy.

suitable alternative to mindless, drunken headbanging often seen at metal shows, which shows no form of aggression or ambient motor skills.
believed by some anthropologists to be the leading cause of retardation in metal kids..
How can you see us hardcore dancing when you should be banging your head. if slayer saw you not banging your head, you would not be allowed to listen to metal any longer...

What stupid emo/scene kids think is moshing. They spin-kick and fight the air. They don't actually fight, to even touch someone else in one of their perverted mockeries of a mosh pit is frowned upon. It's really annoying when you're moshing at a great show, and some stupid emo runs into the middle of the pit and starts "hardcore dancing." It's an embarrassment, it really is.
Stupid kid hardcore dancing: WHOO, YEAH! I LOVE MOSHING!
Kid skanking to the side: You wouldn't know what moshing is if you were thrown in a pit and caught in the middle of a Wall of Doom.

Dancing usually done at emo/hardcore shows where people (I mostly only see the picking up change stuff at shows here) flail thair arms back in forth from the floor into the air like theyre trying to pick up change really fast. Ocasionally people will actually drop loose change and then people start going at it. The other dancing seems kind of dumb. It looks like Tai Bo but its fun to watch people going at pennies.
"I went to a show and got back about 75 cents of what I payed to get in while hardcore dancing becuase rich bitches kept dropping dimes and quarters and shit."

This is a very elegant type of dancing to show your sheer frustration at life and accompany the frustration of the emo/hardcore band that you are listening to.
You have no intent of harming those around you, its simply kicking out at the world around you or maybe just having a good time.
In comparison metalheads share a similar form of dancing known as the "mosh" which can somehow mould onto all their "variations" of music and furthermore if theyre feeling really brave they like to fuck each other up in a "mosh pit" where they have the intention of hurting one another - clever guys.
When not participating in their "mosh pits" they spend their time being angry at the scenester philosophy as they have nothing better to do than grow their hair and not wash.
hardcore dancing: elegant and emotionally charged flails.
moshing: contentless nodding of heads, reinforced by the breaking of eachothers noses.
