    Well..... for those of you who know, how long have you been doing it? what moves have you invented with your crew? or yourself?:p I'm interested in how many macrumors members have done it. (I have been doing it for roughly 3 months) I got inspired from seeing dance crews, people doing it and the jabbawokeez from Randy Jacksons Americas Best Dance Crew.

    For those of you who don't know what shuffling or jerking is, it's a series of underground dance techniques that was invented in the 1980's such as MJ doing a moonwalk, that was used in dance and raves. It has recently within the past years obtain popularity with hip hop dancers.

    People from Los Angeles call it the "LA Shuffle", since it originally originated from there, but there is also the "melbourne shuffle" from Australia and jerking is another type of hip hop movement that individuals dance to rap, electronica, and other urban sounds.:D

    Most of the movements involve twisting of legs, sliding legs, random hand movements, shuffling your feet back and forth, spins, occasional flips, popping of legs and knees... (sounds dangerous huh? lol)

    I know some of you may have seen some 16-19yr olds in mall parking lots or in the back of the store or even in streets filming each other for YouTube videos and may see this is as stupid and funny! :p

    But I wont lie, it's almost a good workout and fun! :)

    I can't dance worth a &#!+, but it's cool to see. There's a crew that performs at the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica on Friday nights. :cool:

    Heh, well at least I made you work for it. I forget that is more of a regional thing. And really old. I guess it really is a Southern thang. :D

    Occasionally I'll shuffle to spice things up a bit, jerking is a bit hard considering my equipment. I'm more of a slide type of gal.

    I think the OP wanted this thread to take a nosedive into innuendious bliss.

    Yeah.....that's something new right there for me.:p lol


    uhm.... I should have named the thread title "Do you shuffle or jerk? (dancing)" :p

    yet again, the title sounds even worse...lol

    the dance technique name is quite odd...... shuffling, jerking, swagging, :rolleyes: which also have references to sexual things... lol

    Naw, you're not old. I'm only 24 and I was watching it when I was 5. My dad loves the Stooges.

    I wasn't just talking about the Three Stooges, although I do like them. There was a song that came out in the early 80s called The Curly Shuffle. It was a joke/Dr. Demento type song that somehow became a top 20 hit.

    I don't actually move around much while jerking. Oh, wait.

    Ok, ok. Enough already. I think I'm going to shuffle off to Buffalo.
