March 28, 8-11pm

Hosted by Abdiel Jacobsen and Kristine Bendul with music by DJ Ramal Rigault

Learn about the real origins of the Hustle with New York City-based performing artists, teachers, and Professional Hustle Dance Champions Abdiel Jacobsen and Kristine Bendul. Hustle originated in New York City in the 1970s when the “dance floor served as a progressive town square” and way before the commercialized craze of Saturday Night Fever and the Disco era (Dance Enthusiast). Dance partners Jacobsen and Bendul are dedicated to preserving this fast, flashy, and powerful American social dance, while pushing the form forward by including aspects like gender-neutral partnering through swapping traditional roles of leading and following.
