The Hustle is a catch name for some disco dances that were extremely popular in the 1970's. Today it mostly refers to the unique partner dance done in ballrooms and nightclubs. The SADTA refined and developed its very own unique and technical style as seen in the medal syllabus and on the competition floor. Hustle requires a level of dedication and understanding in order to successfully execute routines with good technique and style.
