Bribasbane stomp(really like how you can cover more space,spin is awesome,can get really creative with it)
Hakken (it looks like i can add lot of variety in shuffle,with those on the spot movements, but i really don't like hardcore, other than happy hardcore, so idk)
Jumpstyle (Good style and everything, but again, idk. Would it be good if i just took some twist and spins from this one?)
Can you share your views and expirience about this one? Any advice is welcome

For dnb-step and hakken, the basic steps are done one move for every beat comparing to MS where you do 2 quicker moves, in such the MS goes on slower tempo (120-160 bpm) to make the 2 moves look good VS dnb-step and hakken goes on faster edm music (160-180 bpm). To put more weight on this affirmation, i already tried myself for fun and because the basic is so different that creates a sloppy dance where you switch from slow moves to fast moves or from a dance to another but nothing is merged. To finish you could hakken on dnb and you can dnb-step on hardcore that goes well ie same speed of music (stubborn peeps will say a big no no). I think jumpstyle and brisbane stomp goes in the same direction about 1 vs 2 moves for 1kick/1beat/1time in a mesure.
What i have seen that goes well with the shuffle for now is :
- Hardstep/krocha (cause its really similar and the basic is also 2 moves for a beat)
- Some hip hop related "slower" dances like c-walk (cause you can ride many forms of music with this dance), TopRock (goes really well imo), Jerking (what you could see in the Cali "style") and the Brazilian FreeStep (wich is near c-walking but have his own form to suite more house music)
- Tricking (witch is not a dance but an art, MAS shufflers are doing a lot but adapted to the dance tempo)
- and many upperbody dances such as electro(tecktonik)/liquid/popping/waving/tutting/industrial...
If you merge those dances with the shuffle, your dance will stay the Melbourne Shuffle with someother dance moves integrated in... is it fantastic XD
If you wanna give a try with the faster edm dances do it but your biggest challenge will be to remain consistant.

I had the same idea last year so this is just the analyse that have resulted after having learned some moves from x-outing and hakken... doing those moves at 130-140bpm is similar to do a t-step at 100bpm... a little boring...
If you gonna add spin-jumps like in Brisbane Stomp, you could not be wrong imo...

Experiment, experiment, experiment. This is what I like to see from people.
"I sometimes feel that I am the dark subconscious of the whole human race."
I want the human race and everything created by it to disappear. No religion, no governments, no wars, no science, no technology, no money, no conflicts, no wars, no stupidity, no greed, no demands, no corruption, nothing. The world would truly be a peaceful place.
Ignore & Forget.

Like any style used these days if your not good at it you seem to be judged on it and the style itself which is silly, I fell for that one myself when sydney started hakken untill i saw a couple of really good hakkas. Never judge a style based on the majority of lesser expierienced dancers in one style and keep your eye out for that one or 2 sic dancers A style of dance would never have developed into a name and craze if no one mastered it, and made it look amazing!
