How to Do Melbourne Shuffle Dance Spins

Learn how to do Melbourne Shuffle dance spins from choreographer Matt Steffanina in this Howcast dance video.


What's up? This is Matt Steffanina and today I'm going to teach you guys how to add spins into your shuffle combinations. I'm going to teach you guys one of my favorite spins and you start by going into the running man. Once we get to this position we're going to turn on our front foot over our right shoulder. So I'm going to take this shoulder and pull it back, spinning on my front foot.

Another thing that you can add into this spin, to make it even more stylish is a kick. As you're finishing the spin you're going to take the leg that's up and you're going to kick that foot out before dropping back down into your running man.

So, as I turn I'm pulling around. I'm going to kick this leg and then I'm going to go right back into my running man from the kick and from the spin. Let's try that again, slowly. So I start with the running man. I put my weight onto my front foot, use my arms to turn, kick this foot out and then right back into the running man.

You can do this both directions and once you get the hang of it you should be able to do it on beat and add it into your freestyle anywhere you want. Here's some examples of how to add spins in a little bit faster.

And that's how you add spins into your Melbourne shuffle combinations.
