Hey Vinny! Angie !! Do ya Wanna Hustle??

Only gonna post once but we got so many VO5 fans...

No need to RSVP NO unless changing from "Yes"

VO5 Fans and Disco Babies!!

Beginner Hustle Series will be featured for 4 consecutive Tuesdays from 7-8 pm.

“The Hustle” is a catchall name for some disco dances which were extremely popular in the 1970s. Today it mostly refers to the unique partner dance done in ballrooms and nightclubs to disco music. It has some features in common with swing dance, so this is a good time to grab it. (Especially if you’ve tried the Lindy Hop class).

Modern partner hustle is sometimes referred to as New York Hustle. If you want to remember (or discover) what music you can Hustle to, check this out:

Important Stuff

This series is for 4 weeks. This is one dance style for which you should have proper shoes. There are a lot of spins, you need proper shoes to prevent injury. NO street shoes. !



This class is run by Tempo Ballroom and Latin dance studio and there is a $10 a class charge or you can purchase a 10 class pass of $85 good for any group class or simple, single class you may take outside the group (a group class before one of their parties.)



Please RSVP for all the sessions so we can attempt to maintain balance or better yet, grab a partner (and bring two friends)!! Please keep your RSVPs up to date, I'm marking out the no shows...

    What kind of shoes?

    • John C

      Dance shoes that have a smooth sole (no sneakers) s you'll be turning alot. You won't need the elegance of a ballroom heel (lots of heel also not needed) but something that has decent support and isn't all straps (remember that guys). If you don't ahve dance shoes Virginia Davis (east side) and Rosy Cheeks or Tempo (west side) can help you choose.

    Hi John. I am a pretty decent dancer and want to try this. Sounds like we start with the basics and go from there? Sounds like the case... if so I will sign up. I took ballroom dance lessons to have some fun but really enjoy high octane dancing.

    As far as shoes I usually wear a smooth bottomed low cut slip on shoe when I go dancing.

    Thanks

    John

      No your OTHER left foot is what they usually have to tell me... Yup, start at square one and do your best John Travolta to da right, then the left. Most slip-ons can get kind of loose after dancing awhile and shoes on the dance floor have to be clean and not "off the street". I Found that my dance shoes clean up nice with a finishing sander and 80 grit about once a month (which reminds me that I was slippin' last night).

    Everybody remember to RSVP as I work to keep us somewhat balanced. As I mentioned above, this is a 4 week series but will only be posted once, then no more reminders to membrs.

    I'd like to try this but have absolutely no experience. Anyone else like this or do most people have some past training?
