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.

A great underground rave dance that is still great, but has been screwed up and manipulated by LMFAO.
Here's a the short story of what Melbourne Shuffle is:
Melbourne Shuffle is an underground rave dance that is normally done with Trance/Techno/Hardstyle and/or Rock/Heavy Metal. It originated in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia back in the mid-1980's. Back then people normally danced to trance or rock earning some shuffler's the term "Rocker". When 2004, 2005 rolled around, people started shuffling to Hardstyle and Hard Trance and wearing these baggy pants called "Phat Pants/Rave Pants"
Phat Pants are basically black, baggy thick denim jeans with reflective material on them, often making certain patterns and creates the illusion that they are gliding.
When 2010 rolled around, LMFAO came out with their song "Party Rock Anthem (Everyday I'm shuffling)".
This song, and the manipulated dance style often called "noobie shuffle' or 'newschool shuffle' did not bode well the original, Melbourne Shufflers who just danced for the fun and hanging around with their friends. It is apparent that LMFAO started shuffling just for fame, and only doing a move called the "Running Man" while real shuffling has much more moves like "Spins", "T-Step/SideStep", "Running/Walking Man", and "Kicks".

TL;DR Version:
LMFAO shuffles for fame and money
Melbourne Shuffle is done for fun, and passion.

An epileptic spasm in slippery shoes, usually orchestrated by low brow knuckle draggers who look like David Bowie on a bad hair day, clad in equally as ugly white jeans and oversized, outdated sweatshop shoes.

These "dances" are usually carried out upon the floors of Melbourne idiot gatherings known as "clubs" by ecstasy-tripping transvestites in order to attract the attention of the opposite sex, who, ironically, usually bears more body hair than the "dancer".
