Intro Hustle Lesson (8pm) with Savage and Samuelle. For a taste of their dancing style check out the video at the bottom of this page. Savage and Samuelle are 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.
