Description of what is on the sound file:
Despite my father being a native English, I have only spent about one year of my life in Great Britain, so unfortunately my accent isn't as good as if I was a fully native speaker. However, I think my accent is not that far from a British native one.
Transcript of sound file:
The Hustle is a disco or nightclub partner social dance that was extremely popular in the 1970's.
Based on older dances such as the mambo, the Hustle originated in Hispanic communities in New York and Florida in the 1970's. It became an international dance craze in 1975 following Van McCoy and the Soul City Symphony's "Hustle".
There are various forms of the Hustle, including the New York Hustle and the Latin Hustle.
