Shuffling originated in Melbourne, Australia and in the UK back in the 80’s as part of the underground rave scene. In the mid to late 2010’s, Shuffle gained extreme popularity worldwide, likely due to its prominence on social media. With this increased exposure, the differences between Melbourne and UK Shuffle became quite apparent, which led to the labeling of these two distinct styles: Melbourne Shuffle vs. UK Shuffle, with the latter more commonly referred to as Cutting Shapes!
