"My goal in the DJ booth is to make sure everyone is dancing and having a good time."shares Dennis. Recognized as an interactive Disc Jockey, Dennis invites your requests and welcomes your feedback. " If I don't have your music, I will have it next time". Dennis has that uncanny ability to remember a face and link it to a song.

These are the points of difference that has made Dennis one of the tri state areas top DJs.

Dennis is not new to the hustle dance world. He began hustle dancing over 20 years ago.

My limits are endless until the plug is pulled."  Having been on both sides of the dance floor as a competitive and social dancer, DJ Dennis knows the importance of feeling the music deep inside. Dancers can expect to hear a broad selection of music well known to the Hustle world including some Latin, WCS, Classics, Club and beyond. He knows how to jump start a party and get the dancers in motion.

"I have heard hustle dancers are tired of the slow, mundane music. They would like more energetic music so they can become creative in their dance" shares Dennis. "It is difficult to find "hustle music" in a store.  However, every day I am in search of hustle music to add to my collection.  It is a never ending job, but I love it. "A great hustle music collection is priceless? and I have it "
