“I dance because it feels amazing and it’s cool to watch yourself improve over the years. It takes my mind off the chaos going on in the world and it brings joy to others and I love to teach and spread my passion because “The meaning of life is to find your gift and the purpose of life is to give it away” – Colin Gribble
His favourite genres of EDM (Electronic Dance Music) are house, techno, and trance, future bass, synthwave, indie, Nu-Disco, very futuristic beats or sounds. Gribbz has been to many festivals but his favourite festival to date is Dreamstate in Southern California (Trance Nation).
“In 5 years I see shuffling being taught at studios all across the United States, as it is becoming a more accepted and modernised dance style over here in Northern America” – Colin Gribble
Colin Gribble started his own shuffle meet-ups in Tempe Arizona and have been helping it grow for 4 years now consistently. He has had many Dj‘s play at the shuffle meet-ups which have then gone on to be recognised. Today they play at bigger venues and festivals.
“I’m proud to say I helped foster them in some way, starting my own shuffle meetups lead to a world of opportunities!” – Colin Gribble
