This dance was inspired by an experience I had with my dance class one evening. Due to a scheduling mix-up, the room that we normally dance in was occupied. We ended up dancing in a narrow hallway for half an hour. The next day one of my students said we were doing the “Hallway Shuffle” and I thought….There SHOULD be a dance for that! This would be a great dance for teaching shuffles to beginners!
