The Origins of Hustle
Discos, with good musical and sound quality as well as flamboyant lighting effects became very popular in Europe and America in the late 60’s. In the early 70’s, a new dance emerged and became very popular on the dance floor. This “Touch Disco” was called the Hustle. The Hustle marked the return of popularity in partner dancing. The popularity of
“Modern” and “Retro” music with “Disco” accents keeps this young, exciting and energetic dance popular even today. Now hustle dance lessons are popular at all major ballroom dance studios.
How to Dance the Hustle
The spins and wraps are the primary components of the Hustle. More advanced dancers will use the syncopated step in conjunction with elaborate arm movements.
