Hustle dance lessons in NYC at Dance Fever Studios. The hustle dance originated straight out of Brooklyn in the 1970″s. Like swing and Foxtrot, it is a uniquely American dance. You can not turn on the radio without hearing hustle music. Donna Summer, Barry White, R. Kelly, Abba and the Bee Gees have produced some popular hustle dance tunes.
Dance Fever Studios is a top NYC hustle dance studio. We teach the very basic beginner fundamentals, all the way to advanced, performance level hustle dancing. The hustle dance is some times called the Latin hustle and the New York hustle. Both are the same dance. Back in the day, when the hustle was developing as a dance, there were a few different versions. But, now there is only one hustle dance that everyone dances.
