Swing out with Outside Turns and Swivels

Audrey and Brian show a Swingout with an Outside Turn and Swivels for the follower.

The moves in this video are:
– Swingout with Outside turn free spin.
– Swingout with Outside turn (regular).
– Swingout with Outside turn free spin and spin for leader.
– Swingout with Swivels for the follow.
– Sequence with break moves. 1. Mess Around. 2. Boogie Down (also known as Boogie Drop)

Leaders: in a Swingout with Outside Turn, never pull on your follower’s right hand with your left hand in the turn – this is dangerous and can result in injury.

Followers: make sure that when you do your Swivels at the end of a Swing out and beginning of a new Swing out that you try to give the leader the same kind of feeling as when you do a normal rock step at the beginning of a Swingout on counts 1 and 2.

Teachers: Audrey Kanemoto and Brian Zimmer

  1. Hi Audrey,

    It’s Mick from Boogie Woogie Ballroom, can you call me on 650-3916760 asap. I want to bring a gal to your class at MV tonight but need some details.


  2. Hi, folks,

    I’m a tap dancer and have to inform you that the step called “falling-off-the-log” is the first (full step) in the video below, not that grapevine-thing with side kicks that is actally spreading in the swing dance scene and on the web under a wrong name (like a cancer)…


    Or there would be two different steps with the same name – not very probable…

    With regards
