Hi Nikky P welcome to the forum.

Definetly be careful with a bigger body mass, the weight even if it's all muscle will really hit your joints hard.

It's impressive that you can do running man, that hardstyle would be the most physically demanding.

Try moves that don't involve the thumping down, so the shuffle/tstep is good and spins.

Don't worry too much about the looking right, you'll find ways to look good as you practice. And your muscle tone will improve with the workouts

Mostly just concentrate on building the muscle strength to cope with dance.

There's a lot of big guys in classical ballet, because the girls are usually tall with well toned body muscle (muscle is heavier than fat) and they need a big guy who can swoop them off their feet, and hold them in the air for a while

Dude, believe me, I started shuffling a week ago, and I couldn't do anything, so your already better then me. But when everyone says "practice" it works more then anything. I'm sure you'll learn and be a great shuffler, just with time, like everyone Very Happy


Good luck,


Cheers

Haha Hardstyle is my Exercise Razz
But yeah I'm pretty heavy too for my size..
big Boned... fml

Don't ever feel awkward when you shuffle! Confidence is key, you'll hesitate less, the moves and more importantly TRANSITIONS will look better which will truly make your shuffle look beast!

I've been shuffling for almost 9 months now, but I do better than some of my friends who've been doing it over a year now, and I know exactly how you feel.
So don't worry, keep up the practice and exercise and you'll do awesome! Very Happy
