Danced in clubs to "disco" music with a hard driving beat. Originally called "Latin Hustle" this dance can be pretty fast and very energetic. It is characterized by lots of spins and syncopated footwork for the follower. Fun and challenging.
This class is designed for students with no or little prior knowledge and those that need a brush up; an introduction to the look and feel of the dance. Courses will provide instruction and repetition in the basic & pre-intermediate steps and introduce the importance of the leader/follower connection and Latin motion. Particular attention is paid to timing and musicality.
It is recommended that students take this course for 3 to 4 months before moving on.
Stick around for the Hustle Practice (FREE for current Dance Manhattan students, $5 for Guests) held from 9-10pm each Wednesday. Practice your moves and make new friends! This FREE Practice session is monitored by Wayne Tusa, for those newer students who have some questions or need some personal attention.
