2005. Part 2 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 ...

    @CrutialProductions We get it, nobody likes LMFAO shufflers, but people who go around hating on them are overreacting. If true shufflers don’t do it just because it is “IN”, then they’re going to keep doing it. But the LMFAO people treat shuffling as a fad, and chances are, 98% of those people aren’t going to shuffling anymore. Keep it it a secret, then you might as well have no new shufflers and let them all die out.

  7. CrutialProductions says:

    I hate LMFAO because this is an underground Dance and it should stay underground only certain people should know about it, then stupid LMFAO came into the picture and just totally took advantage of it and now everyone does it..but their not true shufflers they do it cuz it “IN” but we as shufflers should keep it a secret and as a underground dance forever to keep all the fucking posers out.
