CBS Sunday Morning Show, May 2009: Mo Rocca did this piece on hustle at the International Hustle and Salsa Comp. in
Hustle featured on "So You Think You Can Dance"
2009 Update: Will we see Hustle on "So You Think You Can Dance" in 2009? How many times do we have to stomach Doriana Sanchez's "Disco" choreography? Hopefully, viewers realize that her version of "Disco" is NOT related to HUSTLE!
The dance called "Hustle" (a partner dance) was featured on July 11, 2007 on the hit television show "So You Think You Can Dance", choreographed by Maria Torres.
For a number of years, Hustle dancing has not received its dues on national television. Since the days of Dance Fever, Soul Train, Disco Step By Step, Soap Factory, Don Kirshner, Soul Alive...... television has forgotten Hustle. In many cases, it has been misrepresented. Some viewers relate Hustle to a dated form of Saturday Night Fever, John Travolta polyester suits and poses, afro wigs, or line dancing.
"So You Think You Can Dance" recruited Hustle Hall Of Fame members Maria Torres along with Kenny Gonzalez to teach and choreograph a New York Style Hustle routine for two of the remanding 14 contestants. The routine was awesome! See it: Lacey and Kameron hustle
