Town Stages announces a Hustle Masterclass with Maria Torres on Wednesday, July 25, 2018 at 6pm, with a Hustle Dance Party starting at 8pm. Tickets are $25 for the Masterclass, $10 for the Dance Party, or $30 for both, and are available at

Join Maria Torres as she teams up with Waack To The Future & Wise Fruit to offer a special Hustle Dance Masterclass & Party. Rediscover one of the most popular social dances born from New York's own Latin community-THE HUSTLE-in this dynamic two hour workshop focused on the partnering technique of "Lead and Follow" with an emphasis on the musicality, speed and syncopation of the dance. Then stay for the dance party with live DJ and drink specials!

Maria's Hustle choreography can be seen on Broadway in Donna Summer The Musical and in the touring production of Broadway's On Your Feet, among others.

"The Hustle" is a catchall name for some disco dances that 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 Mambo and swing dance. Its basic steps are somewhat similar to the Disco fox, 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." People still do this dance today.
