After having spent the weekend in Melbourne (post to come) my son has been telling me about this thing called the Melbourne Shuffle. As I’m sometimes a dreadful listener when it comes to him because he talks so non-stop a lot of the time it took a while for it to sink in.
This morning he asked if I could Google ‘Melbourne Shuffle’ to find a video of it. Google it I did and found a whole new (to me) dance style I’d never ever heard of.
It’s been around since the late 1980s and as the name suggests it’s from Melbourne.
View a video of it here:
JJ informed me that one of the guys used his hands too much. You see he’s such an expert now. I told him to learn it himself. He could use the back room floor as his dance floor as apparently the dancing surface needs to be a bit slippery for the shuffle to work.
Had you heard of the Melbourne Shuffle before?
I have never heard of it before. I don’t even know what to say. My first thought was that it looked like someone having a sponsored epileptic fit but it actually looks quite tricky. Way too tricky for me anyway. If JJ masters it you must post a vid!
My eldest boy who turns 11 tomorrow will absolutely love this!!!! Thanks for sharing.
I would call it more a stomp than a shuffle – sheesh, those Victorians, hey?
*sticks tongue out at Jeanie lol*
Yep, I’ve heard of it, not a big fan cos the techno music isn’t one of my favs lol.
I find it entertaining to watch.
I’d much rather see a young bloke doing that on video than sucking spray paint fumes from a plastic bag behind the railway station.
Thanks to the dancers.
