Hustle

    

Get down and boogie - Disco Fever is still raging and there's nothing like Hustle to get you groovin' and movin'. 4-Count Hustle is done to fast music and danced with a steady, driving rhythm. 3-Count Hustle speeds the steps up for slower music and adds some excitement and syncopation to the rhythm. These classes/workshops will cover both styles as well as the turns, turns, and more turns which made the Disco Inferno Hot! (4-week Classes focus more on 4-Count, while workshops address both styles equally.).
