"Hustle" from 70s to TODAY!

Early Hustle was a 5-step count with no turns, created by Puerto Rican teenagers in late 1972 as a direct result of Puerto Rican Elders objecting to young teenagers doing a grinding slow dance known as the 500. Created in the South Bronx among Puerto Rican teens it was originally done at house parties, hooky gigs and basements club dances in the South Bronx. By 1974 it became known as "Spanish Hustle" and in 1975 the Fatback Band made a song with that name. It was also known as the "Latin Hustle"; and was a 6 step count to the beat of the music. Around 1976 it became known as the New York Hustle. Later, known as just the Hustle, when the dance became commercialized after the release of Saturday Night Fever in 1977
