Hustle

The Hustle is a dance that morphed out of Swing, Mambo and Tango in the 60’s and 70’s. Discotheques were popular both in Europe and the US. These venues had high quality sound systems and great lighting. The Hustle was made even more popular with the release of Saturday Night Fever in 1977. The music of The Bee Gees, Van McCoy and Donna Summer made the dance even more popular. The Hustle quickly became the most popular dance in the country. Hustle took the place of Swing and Mambo in discotheques and dance halls around the country. Today there are many “versions” of Hustle. We teach the four count Hustle as it is the easiest to learn, but all of the steps we teach in four count can be easily adapted to the styles that use the three count Hustle.

A few examples are listed below:

Song Title Artist
She’s Got the Look Roxette
Love’s Theme Barry White
Dancing Queen Abba
More, More, More Andrea True Connection
