The Differences Between Hustle and Swing

The hustle is among the only rhythm dances not considered a swing dance. An almost 50-year gap exists between the origins of swing and hustle. Swing dancing includes a wide range of loose dancing styles born from the Roaring 20s and ballroom jazz traditions. Though distinct from the swing category, hustle shares a few traits and takes inspiration from swing dancing. Both involve the lead dancer taking back-forward steps with the left foot, like a rock-step motion.
