About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Wednesday, December 14, 2022.

Hustle is an American dance which originated in the 1970s. It is traditionally danced to club hits of both the 1970s as well as contemporary times. The dance is designed to be highly dynamic, flashy, and powerful. Although it's movement history is rooted in a 6 count basic, the final form of the dance is a 3 count basic with some extended patterns and syncopation.

The popularity of Hustle dancing during the mid 1970s can not be overstated. It was the main theme at numerous night-clubs throughout the country. Music for the dance consisted of Funk and the new sounds of Disco and always had strong beats which would later become the branches for House music, Pop music, Club remixes, slow Trance and even Lounge music.

Today dancers from the former era are still passing on their knowledge to younger dancers. The dance is relatively new as far as partner dances are concerned. This means that the Hustle of today has evolved since its first steps. Tempos today are a little slower than fast disco versions that burned out the dance in the early 1980s and the dance has been refined in every way. Music still ranges from classics from the original era to contemporary radio remixes and club house music.
