Hustle, is a partner dance, that originated in urban clubs in the 1970s.

To this day, Hustle is continuously evolving and is one of the few social dances born and cultivated in the U.S.

–> JULY 22 – AUG 26 : instructor Corie Harnett presents NEW YORK STYLE MAMBO, or Salsa “On 2” — Intensive Introductory Series¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† **On 2 – New in St. John‚Äôs!**
Originating in New York in the mid-1970’s Palladium era and incorporating elements from many different dances, from Swing to Hustle to Afro-Cuban, this style of salsa distinguishes itself from others in that it is danced on the second beat of the music. In this way it is like many other urban dance forms because it accents the percussive instruments in the song, lending itself to soulful self-expression through the music.
Plus, it‚Äôs just plain fun–learning to dance ON2 will open up your social dancing possibilities and deepen your connection to the music!
In this six-week series, we will cover aspects of musicality, partner connection, basic turn pattern technique, and turning and spin technique ‚ÄúON2‚ÄĚ.
Please note that while this is an introductory course, it is not suitable for absolute beginner dancers‚ÄĒof course you can be completely new to ON2, but some previous dance experience is necessary (and some experience with partner dances is a definite asset!).
WHEN: Wednesdays July 22, 29, August 5, 12, 19, 26 from 7:00 ‚Äď 8:00 p.m.
WHERE: at Mount Pearl School of Dance (75 Barbour Drive, Mount Pearl)
INVESTMENT: $90 per person.
Pre-registration only (i.e. no drop-ins).
Contact corieography”AT” to register.
About the Instructor:
Corie Harnett is a dancer, choreographer and arts educator who has explored a wide array of movement forms and dance traditions. She fell in love with Latin street dances about ten years ago when she began social dancing in Toronto’s underground salsa scene. Since then she has performed at such events as the Toronto Salsa Festival, Montreal Salsa Convention, Rochester Salsa Weekend and the Jimmy Anton Social in NYC, and has social danced with some of the finest dancers on the international salsa circuit.
A fan of the New York style mambo (“On 2”), Corie loves to play with the musicality, body isolations and solo footwork it encourages, and seeks to combine these elements in dynamic and soulful ways in her choreographies.
