The Hustle Line Dance has 4 main section as you will see if you want the hustle video on this page.

Remember to step back with the right foot when you first start this dance. Interestingly enough, many other line dances (not all) begin with the right foot.

Again start this section with your right foot. 1) Step side and slightly back, then 2) Cross your left foot in front of your right. 3) Step side with your right foot again. 4) Bring left foot together with right foot and tap (do not change weight). Then repeat the same patter moving to the left.  Repeat the whole thing to finish Section B.
 
Section C:  Hop forward and hop back. These are slow hops. (Hope forward on beat 1 and pause on beat 2). On beat 3, hopt backward and hold or pause on beat 4.
Beat 5: hop forward. Beat 6: hop backward.
Beat 7: click your heels together. Beat 8: click your heels together again.
