default I'm new, and I want to shuffle!

Post by Sandman on Sat 10 Dec 2011, 11:40

(I apologize, English is not my first language)

Okay, hello everybody! I'm Phantom (as the username states) but I also go by Sandman (whichever you feel is better) and I love to watch shuffling and I've been trying to do it for about a month now. I know this is gonna sound bad but I do jumpstyle as well (OH NOES HE DOES JUMPSTYLE KILL KILL KILL) but that's mainly because I lived in Europe for the first part of my life so you can only understand that XD! Well I've recently been trying to shuffle and I keep having the same problem, I'm not fluent and I don't think I can glide! I don't know why, I would post a video of myself up doing it but I don't have a camera yet so I'm sorry for anybody who would like to help but not for now, I can't post anything up. But for some reason, I have really started to enjoy this kind of shuffle (well okay since I can't post a link just go to youtube and type in shuffle vs. jumpstyle and you will see the third one has a guy with a white mask and gloves on, click on that and go to video responses and click on the guy that looks like the guy in the white mask... or wait until 0:37 on the video either way... I aspire to be this guy!) I don't really know what kind of shuffle it is but I love it and if anybody could tell me what it was and what kind it is then that would be great.

I guess I should explain what problems I have with my shuffle. I think my worst problem is the transitions, since I don't use the "Running-man" move a lot, I tend to just "T-step" most of the time, which is what the shuffle is... right? But the transitions kill me because I feel whenever I do the transition and I do it with the "Running-man" I look really foolish and when I don't do it I sort of trip over myself, especially when transitioning from the left leg to the right leg to "T-step". I think my left leg is stronger in this dance for some reason, I don't know why but I suppose it is. If anybody else has or had this kind of problem before and knows how to fix it that would be great.

Also, I have become suspicious of the fact that I might not be gliding, and when I do feel it I stutter at one point or have to transition. Does anybody know a way to make myself look like I'm gliding across the floor more consistently, or does the gliding illusion come with the phat pants? Thanks and I would just like to say once again...

Hello everybody in the shuffle world!

I didn't start because of shuffling, but I saw it at a rave party and I though that it would be amazing and fun to do it! Jumpstyle is just my first ravedance.

Old School Shuffle looks like my kind of thing, gliding around doing the "T-step" yeah I think that's the one I like the most because you can do so much! But fluency... ach!

Well when I get some stuff (mainly to hide my identity and skin because nobody needs to know that) I guess I can make a video on Jumpstyle and I'll make a Shuffling video just to see what I do wrong and how people can help so sure? Not sure how others will feel though because this is a Shuffle community but I guess I could give it a try.
