How to Dance the Melbourne Shuffle Moonwalk

Learn how to dance the Melbourne Shuffle Moonwalk from choreographer Matt Steffanina in this Howcast dance video.


What's up? My name's Matt Steffanina, and today I'm going to teach you guys how to add to Moonwalk into your shuffle combinations. In order to combine these moves, you need to know two steps. The Moonwalk, and the Running Man.

From your Running Man, we're going to take our foot, and as it goes back, we're going to come up onto the toe. This foot is now going to help us start our moonwalk. In order to Moonwalk, you need to remember that the foot that's sliding has to stay flat to the floor. What I mean by that is, as I pull my right foot back, I'm pushing my heel down towards the floor. So that I'm not dragging my foot on the toe. Once I pull this foot back, I'm going to switch my feet, coming up onto my right toe, and now I'm going to slide my left foot back flat, to switch my feet again.

You can continue doing the Moonwalk all the way across the floor if you want, but when you're ready to go back into your running man, you're going to take the foot that's in front and put it flat, bringing your back knee up. From here we can go right back into our Running Man. Let's try and put those together, starting with the Running Man.

Here we go, one, two, three, four. Now we're going to go onto the toe of our back foot. Pulling our front foot back, switching into the Moonwalk. Now we're going to do one more and then we're going to pick our back leg up to go back into the Running Man. And that's how you add the Moonwalk into your shuffle combinations.
