SHUFFLE - introduction

It is significant that no single person has been identified as the creator of the Melbourne Shuffle. While it is commonly danced by individuals, it has always been a communal experience. A group of people moving.

Part of the Shuffle ethos is, that it is freely owned by everybody, everyone can contribute and everybody is welcomed. How does such an ideal work?

No one can even be sure when it started. It just seemed to be. Like a touchstone, everybody just knew about it. Like something primal, something that has always been. 'It' called, they came.

What is it about an isolated coastal village on the edge of the planet (next stop South Pole), that gave birth to such a mysterious creature? Why do so many relate to this dance and call it their own? Why does it cross international, religious and cultural boundaries with ease?

It's always fresh, always personal, and is always passionate! It adapts to it's surroundings, to each generation, growing and changing...
