🌸 HUSTLE DANCE WORKSHOP 🌸
Hustle is a dance style created in New York in the 70s during the disco boom, and it is danced in pairs. Hustle has its roots in mambo, swing and other latin dance styles, which is why the dance style is sometimes also called Spanish hustle or Latin hustle.
Tanja Kuurola and Niklas Isola, active members of the Finnish hustle scene, come to teach hustle dance at Keran Katujuhlat. Anyone without previous experience can participate in the dance workshop, and you can also come to the class without a pair, since couples are continuously mixed during the dance class.
The workshop will take place on Kera Uusi katu at 5 PM – 6:30 PM.
