Melbourne Shuffler Documentary Part 3/7

2005. Part 3 of 7 Jack60k. Subscribe. Underground Epidemic Productions (www.uep.com.au) has produced a ground breaking documentary called the Melbourne Shuffler. Beginning in the late 80s in Melbournes underground party scene, a revolutionary freestyle dance began to grow and has now developed into the most unique and robust dance style since the birth of Breakdancing. Initially grown from the roots of Acid Techno/House music along with back stepping and psychedelic arm movements. The Melbourne Shuffle has no set steps but encourages individuality and imagination, incorporating dance moves from numerous styles such as miming, popping & locking, liquid and breaking. But the basis of the Melbourne Shuffle has traditionally been the footwork either performed sliding left to right, on the spot or in a triangular direction, but is evolving everyday. Known as Rocking to the Melbourne locals the name Melbourne Shuffle has been derived from international DJs, overseas visitors and the media trying to describe this phenomenon. The Melbourne dancers dont dance for competition or to show off but for themselves, for fun and self-expression. Learning by watching other dancers and incorporating variations into their own style they create an individual style representing their own personality. The documentary traces some of the early beginnings of the Shuffle and shows how it has evolved and progressed into what it is today. Interviews with Melbournes dancers old and new; discover why ...

    its easier when you know the song that you are dancing to very well so you know what types of beats are about to come up.. and being able to recognise the beats to the song and individual parts of the song can be used for speacial moves you can pull off, people love getting complimented, know ing the song that is playing very well makes it so much easier for you.
