Shuffle Dance

Dance is a beautiful medium of expression. There are various styles of dance present all over the world, which reflect the culture of the place they are born in. One such style is the shuffle dance, bearing a strong resemblance to the jazz style of the early years. While the previous style had only heel and toe movements, variations were added to it at later stages. Amongst the numerous variations incorporated in the dance format were hand movements. The techno music, which was used earlier, was replaced with trance music and house music. However, the heel-and-toe action has remained the prime key to the dance form.
Shuffle dance is today popularly known as 'shuffling'. The name has derived its significance from overseas DJs, party goers, visitors and the media trying to describe its phenomenon. Today, shuffle dance has evolved to become one of the most dance forms across the world. To make the dance easy, some dancers sprinkle talcum powder on the floor beneath their feet, making them glide more easily. It also helps in incorporating the 360 degree spins or jumps into their moves. Let us know about the various types of shuffle dance.
Different Types Of Shuffle Dance
Melbourne Shuffle Dance
One kind of shuffle dance is known as the Melbourne shuffle dance. It has a history that dates back to the 1980s, in the Melbourne underground scene. The basic movements which encompass the dance are the fast heel-and-toe action, with a style suitable for various types of electronic music. The variants of shuffle dance incorporate hand movements as well. However, despite the variations, the main heel to toe movement remains as the key motion, giving it the term ‘the Melbourne shuffle’.
Two of the main constituents of the Melbourne shuffle that have managed to remain consistent are the component moves ‘Running man’ and ‘Shuffle’. The former involves a stomp forward, followed by a double hop backwards with the same foot, the other foot repeating the action leading to a running-on-the-spot motion. The latter, on the other hand, is a fast sideways heel-toe motion on one foot, twisting at the ankle. As compared to the yesteryears, the popularity of shuffle dance has grown by leaps and bounds in the present times, thanks to the fast developing technology.
Cupid Shuffle Dance
Cupid shuffle dance has been named after the songwriter Cupid, who further evolved it. It is most prevalent in the African-American society. The fundamentals of the dance are the same as that of the Melbourne shuffle dance, but a tinge of modernity has been added to it. It brings a modern and hip twist to the electric slide. Not only is the Cupid Shuffle easy to learn, but it can also be practiced and enjoyed by people of all age groups.
To start off, all you need is to do is put on the music and wait for the right time to get your groove on. Start with the steps, taking 4 steps towards the right and then, 4 to the left. Now, put your heel to the floor in front with your right leg, and then with your left leg. Repeat this twice for each leg. Now, just walk in place, turning right while doing so, so that when you get to the next part, you're facing the next wall. You can also turn and shake your hips to the beat. Repeat dance for each direction you're facing.

1. Seputar Shuffle Dance
Shuffle sebenarnya adalah gaya tari yang digagas dan dipopulerkan pertama kali di Melbourne Underground Scene, Australia. Tarian jenis ini awalnya menjadi tren di era akhir dekade 1980-an. Namun, sebagaimana dituturkan Jason (anggota Rave Army Crew sekaligus penggagas IR) kepada Media Indonesia, pada 2004 Shuffle Dance kembali marak menjadi tren Australia. 

Shuffle mulai masuk ke Indonesia pada tahun 2006. Namun, saat itu Shuffle belum menjadi tren. Hanya segelintir anak muda Indonesia yang mulai mengenal, belajar dan mencintai Shuffle. Barulah pada akhir 2009 dan puncaknya pada 2011 ini Shuffle benar-benar digandrungi oleh kalangan muda-mudi negeri ini.
Sekilas, Shuffle mirip tari jazz. Gerakan dasar Shuffle gerakan cepat tumit dan kaki hingga terlihat seakan menempel ke lantai. Tarian ini lebih berkonsentrasi pada keindahan gerakan kaki, ketimbang memadukan seluruh anggota tubuh untuk membentuk tarian yang indah. Ini juga yang menjadi salah satu cirri khas Shuffle sebagai sebuah tarian.

A Whole New World lyrics

I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no or where to go
Or say we're only dreaming

A whole new world
A dazzling place I never knew
But when I'm way up here, it's crystal clear
That now I'm in a whole new world with you
Now I'm in a whole new world with you

Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

A whole new world
Don't you dare close your eyes
A hundred thousand things to see
(Hold your breath, it gets better)

I'm like a shooting star
I've come so far
I can't go back
To where I used to be

A whole new world
Every turn a surprise
With new horizons to pursue
Every moment red-letter

I'll chase them anywhere
There's time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

A whole new world
That's where we'll be
A thrilling chase
A wondrous place
For you and me

Ten 2 Five
I Will Fly lyrics

You know all the things I've said
You know all the things that we have done
And things I gave to you
There's a chance for me to say
How precious you are in my life
And you know that it's true

To be with you is all that I need
Cause with you, my life seems brighter and these are all the things
I wanna say...

I will fly into your arms
And be with you
Til the end of time
Why are you so far away
You know it's very hard for me
To get myself close to you
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/t/ten_2_five/i_will_fly.html ]
You're the reason why I stay
You're the one who cannot believe
Our Love will never end
Is it only in my dream?
You're the one who cannot see this
How can you be so blind?

To be with you is all that I need
Cause with you, my life seems brighter and these are all the things
I wanna say...

I will fly into your arms
And be with you
Til the end of time
Why are you so far away
You know it's very hard for me
To get myself close to you

I wanna get
I wanna get
I wanna get myself close to you

Beberapa tahun kemudian, tepatnya tahun 2005, gerakan Running Man ditambahkan sebagai variasi tarian ini. Yang kemudian menjadi salah satu gerakan dasar tarian ini.
