Hey guys, it’s Nick Martin here again. Tonight I did some practice on combining the running man and the T step moves. It was my first night practicing the combination of the two moves. I have to say again, the running Man and the T-Step looks so easy when you watch videos on YouTube. I found a video of a guy with a really cool shuffle style! It’s not hardstyle but it just looks like he flows so naturally. I’ll add it to the shuffle dance videos section of the site.
I’m still learning and I have a lot of practice to do. However, watching the video that I just shot tonight, I feel I have improved quite a bit since I started out. This was the first time I actually tried to shoot a video with music. It was a lot of fun but like I said I still have lots of practice to do. The running man is coming along nicely, and the transition into and from the T-step also worked out quite nicely.
I actually shot a total of 20 min. of video, but I edited a lot of stuff out as I was just trying out different things. It was quite fun and something I will definitely do again. I just let the camera roll and videoed myself doing some silly moves. I hope you enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed creating it. I’ll see you in the later shuffle dance video.
When I decided I wanted to start learning how to shuffle I found out that the running man was the first move I had to learn. So obviously I went to YouTube to hunt down the best running man shuffle dance video I could find. Now there are a lot of shuffle dance videos out there but I really found a super cool guy that breaks down the running man into simple drills that we can all learn from.
Remember that when you start doing the running man it’s going to feel wierd and most likely look stupid (unless you’re a total natural or have serious dancing skills already). But all you have to do is practise practise and practise. Remember start out slowly! Get the moves right and then gradually add speed. I did the running man for a few nights without music just to focus on getting the moves right. I followed the guy in the shuffle dance video below and I think it paid off nicely.
After you’ve practised the running man for a few hours, you will definitely see improvement. The great thing about this move is it’s not really complicated. It consists of only 2 moves that get repeated over and over. Okay so I’ve rambled enough, here is the running man shuffle video tutorial which I found to be one of the best on YouTube:
