Hustle/Disco - Dance Miami Style

Hustle/Disco

Hustle/Disco began as an underground movement in Puerto Rican Dance Clubs in NYC and Miami before moving into the mainstream. Some people consider Hustle as a modern day member of the swing dance family. TV dance shows such as Disco Magic In Miami, Disco Fever and Soul Train in Los Angeles helped to popularized Hustle dancing from coast to coast. The song “The Hustle” by Van McCoy in 1976 followed by the movie Saturday Night Fever with John Travolta really set off the popularity of Hustle dancing. Nowadays, Hustle is used by older and younger generation as a social dance. It mostly refers to the unique partner dance done in business functions, weddings and night clubs to disco music.
