Cupid Shuffle

12:21 PM
Danced to the song of the same name by the hip-hop artist Cupid, the Cupid Shuffle has become a very popular dance. The dance is a hip-hop variant of country line dancing and is extremely simple to perform, especially since all the steps are sung in the lyrics:

“To the right, to the right, to the right, to the right” (Slide your body to the right.)

“To the left, to the left, to the left, to the left” (Slide your body to the left.)

“Now kick, now kick, now kick, now kick” (Kick your feet out front using alternating feet.)

“Now walk it by yourself.” (Pretend to walk in place, sometimes adding a dipping motion.)

The dance quickly gained popularity at nightclubs due to its easy-to-learn nature and catchy beat. Even the most novice dancer can perform it by the end of the second chorus. Many have compared the dance to the Cha Cha Slide, which was released in 1996 by DJ Casper of Chicago. The Cupid Shuffle began its rise to popularity in Lafayette, Louisiana, Cupid’s home town.
