People fell in love with Hustle back in the 1970’s. With its flashy and dynamic footwork, Hustle is great for partner or solo dancing! This fast, smooth dance incorporates many turns and can be danced to most modern pop, hip hop, and r&b music. This class is for beginning hustle dancers and experienced dancers that want to work on the fundamentals (basic footwork, patterns, and arm styling) of hustle dancing.
