Welcome to the first official release of any sort of footage from Global Shuffle ! Yay.
It’s been 20 years in the making and first up is arms !
Arm movements have been lost during the commercial era 1997-2003. No surprise why, they take up too much room on the dance floor. You can squeeze more people into a venue if you use the dance floor for crowding instead = $$$.
So they haven’t featured in most new shuffler vids on Youtube because they were sadly long forgotten in the shuffle scene when Youtube hit in 2006.
So to help change that here we are with enough arm moves to keep you busy for months as you discover the top half of your body.
If you’ve got arms, use them. Even if it’s just to accent a hardstyle sequence.
You have far greater movement possibilities including your arms. Much of the rigid arm style in shuffling has been inherited from strict Irish dance.
The arm rigidity is a display of high trained discipline, like a military parade move. It’s actually an arm technique rather than just doing nothing, it takes a lot of effort to maintain rigidity when the rest of your body is stomping around all over the place.
But first a warning. Use your arms with lots of space, those walls can suddenly creep up on you, and broken wrists are never pretty.
So please enjoy the OFFICIAL TRAILER: GLOBAL SHUFFLE
