London’s new dance move subculture, “cutting shapes” or “shuffling,” isn’t groundbreaking in its execution, but it does command a fair amount of criticism from the haters, some even originating from within the scene itself. Via Vice:
I’d say people are allowed an opinion. But, you know, some of the people are talking like the shuffle just came out yesterday or last week, whereas it’s actually been here since the 1920s, when it was the Charleston. So it’s always been about, but there’s that saying, “Old times don’t come back again.” Half of the things we’re doing were done years before, but it’s just been turned around and revamped. Some of the things anti-shuffling campaigners are saying are more borderline racism than actual criticism of shuffling, though.
