The Melbourne Shuffle– a revolutionary freestyle dance style recognised throughout the world as unique to the city. Its genesis is the late 1980s and the underground Acid, Techno and House music party scene. The Shuffle (or Rocking as it is known in Melbourne) has no set steps – it encourages individuality and imagination – and incorporates numerous styles such as miming, popping & locking, liquid and breaking. But it’s the movement of the feet that is all important. Beyond that, it defies description – you just have to see it.
This powerful new documentary explores the phenomenon that is the MelbourneShuffle, interviewing DJs from around the world but, more importantly, letting the music, movement and the words of the Rockers themselves speak
