Disco (Also Called Hustle) had
a very small run. (Maybe five years).
Hustle today to the Plueperfect steppers is a distillation of Disco made by the Dance
The word “hustle” originates from the Middle Dutch hutselen "to shake the money in the game
Abraham Lincoln used it " Things may come to those who wait, but only things left by those who Hustle."
Some say Hustle started as a line dance, then became a couples line dance, which evoled into a couples dance.
But I have a different story to tell. When it all started in the 70's I would go to Whisky à Gogo in
Paris. Many poets would prefom there to music. ( This eventually was called Rap.) I would recite my poem, " My Withered Testicles"
and do a little dance putting my hand over my crotch which made the crowd go wild.
Everyone would copy my move when they danced. I was told by one of the most famous dancers at the time
that it reminded the french of the Ballet Virtuoso Vaslav Nijinsky.
This move (The Lord M Crotch Grab) became a mainstay in Hustle at the time until the Puritanical American
Dance Instructors took it out.
I'm a British Lord and am not ashaimed of driving the the Puritans out of the Empire. But I am also worldly
so I have Irish drinking habits and French morals.
