ADMISSION: $12 for lesson and dance (8pm), $10 for dance only (9pm)

 

Two dance styles which evolved separately but share the same taste in music: West Coast Swing and Hustle. It’s time for Vancouver westies and hustlers to meet & greet – and dance!

Two DJs playing music from the best of both worlds to keep your feet happy and your spirits lifted. Music that makes you wanna groove! DJ Maryann & DJ Stephen playing music for dancing WCS & Hustle. 

Intro Hustle Lesson (8pm) with Savage and Samuelle, a dynamic young dance couple who have been dancing, teaching and performing Hustle for several years. They’ve trained in Montreal, San Francisco and Los Angeles, and have recently been training with Hustle legend Alex Kim. As partners, Savage and Samuelle bring a youthful energy to the dance by fusing their own dance backgrounds (B-Boy, Hip-Hop, Waacking) into Hustle, but at the same time respecting its foundations. Although they emphasize technique, what fuels their passion for Hustle is the creative synergy between two people.

The events take place in various locations in our city, including Robson Square, and we’re super excited to have been invited to run a special edition of our Robson Square Salsa dances on the day.

It’s not summer yet, but the weather is definitely improving and hopefully it’ll be a warm sunny day. Same format as our summer dances, just on a different day and time. And best of all it’s FREE! Everyone is welcome, even if you don’t know how to dance yet, come for the free beginner lesson at 1:30pm.
