Hustle is an American dance that is believed to have originated in 1970 in New York. Spurred on by popular dance contests in the various clubs that pushed dancers to be innovative and come up with new moves and ideas. Hustle was developed to be danced to disco music; it is ideally suited to any music with a strong driving beat, and in some ways its popularity as a dance has outlasted the music that originally inspired it since it is well suited to the rock and techno music played at clubs today.
