BALLROOM DANCE @ STUDIO JEAR GROUP FITNESS!
BALLROOM DANCE HAS ARRIVED @ STUDIO JEAR! Each month, Studio Jear Group Fitness will be hosting ballroom dance classes with internationally-renowned ballroom dance instructor Tony Paolucci! For the month of July, learn SALSA/HUSTLE!
The Salsa - Salsa is a dance form with origins from the Cuban Son (circa 1920s) and Afro-Cuban dance (specifically Afro-Cuban Rumba). It is generally associated with the salsa music style, although it may be danced under other types of music with an 8-count rhythm. In many styles of Salsa dancing, as a dancer changes weight by stepping, the upper body remains level and nearly unaffected by the weight changes. Weight shifts cause the hips to move. Arm and shoulder movements are also incorporated. The Cuban Casino style of Salsa dancing involves significant movement above the waist, with up-and-down shoulder movements and shifting of the ribcage.
The HUSTLE - The Hustle is a catchall name for some disco dances which were extremely popular in the 1970s. Today it mostly refers to the unique partner dance done in ballrooms and nightclubs to disco music. It has some features in common with swing dance. Its basic steps are somewhat similar to the Discofox, which emerged at about the same time and is more familiar in various European countries. In the 1970s there was also a line dance called the Hustle. Modern partner hustle is sometimes referred to as New York Hustle. Learn all the different styles!
