5p-730p with Robert Vance
Hustle is a fast-paced dance that originated in the Disco dance clubs in the 1970’s.  As music changed from rock & roll to the more steady rhythm, of disco music, the dance began to develop and multiple variations of the Hustle were born.

Throughout the 70’s and 80’s, with the help of the developing music (made popular by such films as “Saturday Night Fever”), hustle evolved into what we now dance today – the New York Style Hustle – a smooth dance characterized by fast-moving patterns with many turns.

While primarily associated with disco music, hustle can also be danced to contemporary music.
