The Hustle

The Hustle

During my first few months here in USA, it amazed me how everybody know how to dance this. I have seen our visitors and guests dance this on our wedding day. I have seen people who didn't knew each other dance this on the dance floor last New Year's eve. I have seen campers dance this on the ground. I have seen this on TV, too. So, is this your national dance?

The Hustle is the most popular line dancing here in America, and according to Wikipedia, it is a catchall name for several disco dances which were extremely popular in the 1970s. Today it mostly refers to a unique partner dance done in ballrooms and nightclubs. It has some features in common with swing dance. In the 1970s there was also a line dance called the Hustle--which is regaining popularity as people throw '70s theme parties or schools have '70s dance performances.
