Ronja & Niklas Hustle workshop and Jam 13.11.
Hustle is a partner dance from the 70’s New York City, USA. The dance has been going under different names such as the spanish hustle, latin hustle, rope hustle, New York Hustle and so on, with its roots in mambo, swing and other latin dances.
Hustle is mostly danced to funk and disco music as it was born during the disco craze.
Ronja and Niklas have been actively spreading hustle in Helsinki during the last couple of years, and they have learned from the dancers Alex Kim, Inga be, Tboy, Anita and Archie Burnett among others. Ronja and Niklas are very happy and excited to come to Jyväskylä and share with you!
We will go through the very basics of the dance and guide you from there. You can come alone or with a friend/s. On the spot you will get to choose if you want to lead or follow.
The workshop will be held in english, with translation to finnish or swedish if needed.
After workshop we have hustle jams @mäkitorppa and we have honour to get Dj straight from Helsinki Dj Kifle to play some disco vibes for dancepeople. Jam will be free of charge. Hope to see you there!
We strive to follow safer space policies in our workshop, so we don’t accept any discrimination or harassment of any kind. If you experience it or see it, let us or the organisers know.
