Festival Essentials: Shuffle Like a Professional

Shuffling Stormtrooper

People employ all sorts of different styles to tear up the dancefloor. Some prefer a choreographed routine with a group of friends. Others just let the music take them as they joyfully sway to the beat. But among the droves of happy dancers, you may have noticed one particular species of raver: The shuffler. Here we have a person who’s spend hours mastering the craft, perfecting the unique style to a tee. But even the best shufflers had to start somewhere. And that’s where we come in.

The most important part of learning how to shuffle is understanding that no two shuffles are alike. As you stomp, spin and slide across the dance floor remember that shuffling is all about personal expression and feeling the music. That being said, learn the basics here from your friends at Dance Music Northwest.

1. Take whichever foot you prefer and angle it a little bit to make a T.

2. Place one foot behind the lead foot, angling it in the opposite direction. The heel of your front foot should be touching the middle of the back foot (each step starts and ends in at T).

3. Pivot your front foot on it’s heel. While doing this, take your back foot only a few inches off of the ground but do not rotate it.
