Featured Dance: Hustle-Ballroom Style
Three Types of Hustle Dance Styles
Three Count, Hustle, and “Club” Swing or 4-ct. Hustle
Three Count Hustle is a "slot dance with four steps taken in 3 counts of music, (quick, quick,slow, slow). The basic footwork timing is used to anchor the couple as man leads the lady to perform intricate turns, spins and wraps. The dance begins in closed positon, at right-angles to the partner. Follow is released, sending her straight out on a "track" while lead steps into the same track. The lady dances back and forth on this track, executing turns, spins, and syncopated movements.

Featured Dance - Country 2 Step
Also called "Texas Two Step" - is danced to 4/4 time music with a lively Country/Western beat and medium tempo. It's a progressive dance which moves around the floor counter-clockwise. In traditional "dance frame" the leader puts his right arm over his partner's left shoulder; in more contemporary styling he puts it as most other partner dances, under her arm and on her left shoulder blade. Consists of turns, spins and traveling patterns around the floor.. An example of Country 2-Step music would be: Busy Man by Billy Ray Cyrus.
