Throwback Thursday - The Hustle

If you were a 1970's teen, at some point you did the hustle. This disco dance was popularized by the movie Saturday Night Fever, with John Travolta.  I loved this movie, although it probably was too mature for me at the time.  The music and dancing is what made the biggest impression on me.
I am pretty sure I still could do the basic hustle moves today.  As a teen I even had a book about the dance moves.

I practiced this many times in the '70's. Here, for your listening pleasure, is "The Hustle" by Van McCoy (1975). Check out some of the '70's fashions in this video - parachute pants!  

I'd love to hear your disco dance memories in the comments, below!

This is too cute! If you were an 80's kid like me the movie to dance to was Foot Loose! Travolta and Bacon should've had a dance off! :)

Definitely remember the song and maybe I danced the hustle though I don't remember anything so specific.

I'm only a little bit too young, but I do remember the Hustle. Plus, I used to be in love with John Travolta. Grease, Saturday Night Fever, and Stayin Alive were my favorite movies as a kid. I also loved him as Vinnie Barbarino.
