The 4 count was put in place by the A/M studios to supplement the 3 count ( too fast for the older clientele and taught to beginners )

Actually AM taught 4 count hustle before 3 count. Still teach it occasionally, but more stick with tap timing for someone who cant syncopate well. Teach C/W swing a lot though, which is basically the same as 4 count hustle anyway.

I appreciate your reply to J/boro. Dancing is dancing ( Hustle is evil?/ Argentine Tango got started by the underprivileged drunks in the dark little nightclubs in the barrios of Argentina, Merengue was initiated by slaves chained to metal balls in some ship ports in Latin America) and art by itself it doesn't really matter how it got started or what level of popularity or acceptance it might have in the industry.

Are you seriously trying to qualify the Hustle as an art form?

I guess, in a broad sense, ALL dance is " art ". Whether we like or dislike is in the "eye" of the beholder ; classic e.g. , Picasso .

Perhaps in the same sense that dance is a sport.

First, we need to define " Sport "..

A contest between individuals or groups,; giving something a " sporting " chance, as in to win or lose.
Olympic Ice skating has a dance section..so.. is that NOT sport ?( a lot of ballroom figures are used, and, in fact, a latin coach was used for Torvil and Dean )

Disco is not a partners dance, it essentially two disconnected humans on a floor waving their arms around.
Latin Hustle is a VERY connected partners dance, and complicated in the hands of the competant. Quite beautiful too.

By claiming that "Hustle is disco", you have admitted that you have no idea what you are talking about.
