The Story of Pulse Studios

One of the cornerstones in Calgary’s growing hip-hop community, Pulse Studios opened its doors in 2011 as the first and only dance studio in Calgary exclusive to hip-hop and street dance. “I really wanted to establish a place where authentic education could take place, and where people could be assured that if they come here they’re going to know what hip-hop is,” says Pulse Studios owner and creative director Tara Wilson.

Hustle is a unique three-count partner dance danced to four-count music originating from urban clubs in the 1970s. From its inception, Hustle fused elements of various dances including Latin and disco, and was heavily influenced by popular music of the time, creating a unique social dance. To this day, Hustle is continuously evolving and is one of the few social dances born and cultivated in the U.S.

Kevin's introduction to dance was through the art of bboying at a young age. As a member of the Ground Illusionz Dance Crew, Kevin has developed his craft as well as a talent for creating positive spaces for learning. Kevin's passion for dance has lead him to study hustle in Ottawa, ON. Although still a student of the dance himself, Kevin seeks to share his knowledge to all who wish to learn.

The workshop will target the foundations of hustle, leader and follower styling, intermediate patterns and turns, and establishing the connection between leader and follower whilst adding their individual flavour to the dance.

After the class, there will be a 1.5hr social where good vibes and techniques can be shared and practiced! Lets break out the parties and cyphers hustle style!
