What’s it all about?
Our very own home-grown piece of dance history, the Melbourne Shuffle is a distinctive, energetic rave dance style incorporating stomping, gliding and defying gravity!
The Melbourne Shuffle originated in the secret, illegal underground / warehouse parties of Melbourne’s inner suburbs in the late 1980s. Along with the rising popularity of electronic dance music throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, the dance style spread from its home town to reach dance parties and festivals across the world.
What will we cover?
We will start out with a simple warm-up to get our feet and ankles in the groove before moving onto the iconic heel-toe shuffle step. Then we will move onto some complimentary joining movements and put together mini combinations to allow you to freestyle and shuffle your way through your next full moon dance party!
Who will be teaching?
Liz is an IT professional by day, but has followed her love of dance since the age of 7 when it began with ballet. One style not being enough, Liz branched out into Ballroom, Hip Hop and Jazz (to name a few), in which she taught for 7 years before taking a break to travel the world – which of course, included trying many local dance styles along the way.
Now back and settled in Australia, the dance bug has bitten once again and Liz is eager to share her love of dance and having fun with others.
