That's a great idea.
I found just the right music: Happy Waltz

Thanks, LD.

I've been quietly reading all these exchanges between JJ and others. I can't sit back anymore...
JJ - you say everything is a joke and the other posters don't have a sense of humour...Perhaps you need to realize that you're not funny, just obnoxious. Noone takes advice from someone they don't respect no matter what their expertise. So if you plan on sharing your knowledge in a productive way please do so with as much maturity as you can muster. If not, then no one needs your input.
(I now sit back and wait for you to defend yourself in an aggressive way while pretending you meant it as a joke)

Someone and all of your sockpuppets, take LadyDance's advice. I even found you some music.

Today's hustle.

jj needs to get out of the 70's. The link above is the hustle today. My daughter studied with Lacey...the girl in the clip. She is currently training with a cabaret hustle expert which is much more difficult then the dance in the clip. Cabaret uses a lot of lifts.

Cabaret hustle.

jj also states that if you can master the Mambo, Merengue, and Salsa...you can do hustle in your sleep.

jj.......are you really a dancer or do you just play one on T.V.?

jofjonesboro, you DANCE SNOB! How can you DARE put Merengue above Hustle? It has... points... and spins... and goofy arm-styling... and EVERYTHING Merengue doesn't! *GASP*

Hey, is the "four-count" hustle either the 3-count leveled out or is it "bachata" or "bus-stop"? Just curious.

I think jofjonesboro is just jealous because it takes someone special to rock white platforms and a wide-lapel, purple paisley quiana (sp?) shirt!

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.

so anyway, the IHDA I-H-D-A.com has a hustle syllabus out through DVIDA, which also has several hustle videos.

http://hustlelounge.com/

is a great site for the hustle scene

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.
Art?

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 )
