ABOUT HUSTLE: A social dance born and bred in 1970’s New York City has resurfaced among the new generation of social dancers. Alessandra teaches a traditional Hustle foundation that focuses on 3-count rhythmic synchronicity of leader and follower and the responsibility of each to create a balanced partnership. Social dancing is an outlet to communicate without words, listen to disco classics and contemporary mixes of funk and soul. Above all, to have fun! Dance partners are not required to attend the class. Partners will be made in class and rotate throughout its duration.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: NYC’s social dance community grabbed Alessandra Marconi’s attention one night three years ago at a house music dance club. Recognizing the close knit connection that social dance has between communication and society felt to her like second nature. Marconi soon discovered Hustle dance and humbly became a student of notable OGs like Alex Kim, John Merisier and Domingo Cruz. Alessandra is a versatile artist who works professionally as a dancer, writer and artistic collaborator. She moved to New York City 7 years ago, graduated from Marymount Manhattan College and has since spent several months performing in Europe and Asia.
