Hustle 2-Week Series in Norwalk, CT

Two Mondays (4 Classes) in Sept 2022 (Sept. 12, 26)

Hustle is the partner dance that originated in the 1970s in NYC and the metropolitan cities of the United States. It is designed to be dynamic and flashy. Its core steps are not too complicated, and its requirement for motion and agility make this a perfect dance for club music and parties. This two-week series will contain two parts each week—taking students from their first steps through the ability to sustain a social dance. Hustle is an essential part of your social dance repertoire.
