Loved the ’70s Hustle?

Flashing lights, energetic music, non-stop fun! What’s not to love about hustle?

That’s what pulled SaddleBrooke Ballroom Dance Club (SBDC) professional dance instructor Dale Pizzitola into dancing, and the hustle continues to draw him back. Well, that and everything you shouldn’t be doing as a kid, like staying out all night and having a quick breakfast at the local eatery before sneaking home. It’s time to join the fun and learn the hustle, taught by the Disco King himself, Dale Pizzitola, and the Queen, Ann Pizzitola. Sign up in June for July classes.

Beginning four-count New York Hustle classes will be every Monday in July from 6 to 7 p.m. and every Wednesday from 4 to 5 p.m. Intermediate three-count New York Hustle classes will be on Mondays from 7 to 8 p.m. and Wednesdays from 5 to 6 p.m. All of these classes will be in the Mariposa Room in the SaddleBrooke TWO DesertView Center.
