Do The Hustle

Learn the latest dance craze with New York Hustle Inc.!

Want to do the Hustle? If you were lucky enough to live in New York or LA during the 70's, you might have had the opportunity to learn from a professional instructor and even visit a real discotheque. For the rest of the country, however, vinyl was the answer. Records like this (and there were dozens of them) brought the Hustle to dime stores and supermarkets everywhere.

I love this two-disc record from "New York Hustle Incorporated" because it's got everything you need: generic disco music, rambling dance instructions delivered by a pair of guys with almost comic New York accents, and plenty of photographs of happy couples in ridiculous 70's garb demonstrating the steps.

Can you really learn a dance from a record like this? I tried it a number of times, and could never get more than two or three minutes into the first track without everyone cracking up. Still, I can just see a teenager in Des Moines studying this record religiously in an attempt to become the next John Travolta. It probably worked, too.

All who want to learn the hustle just pick up your yellow pages and look up "dancing instruction" Most partner dance schools teach at least the basic, although the steps may vary a bit from studio to studio. The ads in the YP will include hustle in their dance list if they teach it. Good Luck (07-20-2006)

I saw a few people write kc and the sunshine band played the song "The Hustle." I do not know if they ever did, however, I thought it was Van McCoy that actually wrote and sang this song. Oh well. (06-09-2006)
