    We also have a thread about the Taiwanese Tango, but I wanted to also comment on this Taiwanese Jitterbug. I have been seeing it at the Chinese studios in the LA area and had not seen it before. It looks to be a variation of Hustle, but has some rhythm breaks that are different as well. I never see anyone trying to look "competitive". It is just a fun "chill" dance, and the people seem to have fun dancing it.

    Here is a video example:

    I've done this before at a Chinese studio around here. I dance it as a 4-count Hustle and nobody can tell the difference.

    Looks like the Pingsu, that is the name of it in Beijing area. It goes by other names in other parts of China. I have seen it danced in Beijing, Shanghai, and Chinese dances in the NY/NJ area.
