A dance style originating in the 1980's characterized by fast heel and toe twisting and stepping, running man variations, stomping with the beat, foot swiveling from side to side, and having feet that appear to be gliding on and off the ground.

Shuffling is mostly for the feet and the arms just compliment whatever foot motions are taking place. This dance style is very high paced, intense cardio, and is usually to done to music with a constant beat such as electro, hardstyle, and/or techno.

Shuffling is preferrable in shoes as it won't hurt your feet, but also acceptable in socks or barefoot. Outfit and clothing style are irrelavant. Many shufflers (anyone who is decent or better at shuffle dancing) gain popularity by dancing in public, at meetups, but mostly by posting videos of them shuffling online.

After watching other amazing shufflers, you will most likely want to learn how to or at least want to obsessivly watch others shuffle because it looks cool.
A: "Holy shit dude what's that guy doing?! It looks like he's floating on air while stomping to the music!"

A: "DAMN! I want to be able to do that some day!"

Shuffling is described by some as "dancing", when in fact, it as actually when you drag your feet along the floor instead of walking.
The so-called "dance" is when the "dancer" jerks bits of their body around in an awkward-looking fashion, that sort of looks like a cross between poor attempts at the robot, the moonwalk and miming all at once.

It basically makes the person look like a complete idiot, try-hard and wannabe. It is for people who know they can't dance properly, or who are just too ashamed of themselves to dance like a normal person.
Shuffling is NOT dancing. It is what you do when you want to look like an idiot and an amateur.
"Oh my god! He's having an epileptic fit!"
"No, he's just shuffling"

Normal person: "What the fuck are you doing?!"
Idiot: "Shuffling! It's this new dance craze. See how cool I look!"
Normal person: "No, you look like a complete ass!"

A dance performed by Huarache wearing wonnabe cunts. Shufflers are universally loathed by anyone who has ever been to an actual rave.

Shuffling is usually performed when accompanied by the latest chart house banger, despite the dance never ever matching the actual beat.
