How to Do the Cupid Shuffle Dance

May 19, 2008
The cupid shuffle is a dance move created by songwriter Cupid. This dance is most popular in the African-American community. The dance steps are revamped from the popular dance since the 70's called the electric slide. The electric slide has been adopted as a party favorite and has been known to enliven a dance floor. It seems the Cupid Shuffle is garnering the same esteem. The Cupid Shuffle brings a modern and hip twist to the electric slide. Not only is the Cupid Shuffle easy to learn it's also enjoyable for all ages.

You first start with a four count of shuffling and moving to the left. The song goes "to the left, to the left, to the left, to the left". In these 4 steps you will move to the left with a shuffle and glide to the left. It's that simple, you will want to put some style and rhythm into your glide just to get a better effect. Now, repeat the same exact move, but this time move to the right again use the four count. The song goes "to the right, to the right, to the right, to the right."

The next series of moves include kick your feet forward in a heel toe action. Start with the right foot and thrust it forward with your heel touching the pavement and your toes pointing towards the sky. Quickly switch to the left foot. And then repeat this in a four count, with each kick completing one count. The song goes "now kick, now kick, now kick, now kick."

The last move of the Cupid Shuffle is the "walk it by yourself" move. This is basically a walk it out dance step which allows you a lot of creativity and freedom. The dance step is simply a two-step forward motion with a 360 degree step-by-step spin. The song goes "walk it by yourself, walk it by yourself, walk it by yourself, walk it by yourself."

Cupid Shuffle is as easy as that. This is one of the latest dances to hit the scene and you will impress your family and friends at the next gathering or party when you show them what you got on the dance floor. Now get out there and move to the left, then move to the right, now kick, and walk it by yourself!
