Swivels

Michelle and Doug show the followers Swivels on a swingout.

This is one common way of doing the Swivels also known as the twists. The Swivels are the most famous followers styling in Lindy Hop and there are many different styles and ways of doing them.

Notes for Follows:
– Make sure that you do not pull on your leaders arm while performing the swivels.
– Make sure that you still come forwards towards your leader on counts 2 till 4.
– Try to make sure that your upper body still faces your leaders as much as possible even though your hips are twisting.

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.

Swing Out from open position

Patrick and Natasha show the Swing Out from open position leading the follower forward on count 1.

The first part of the video focuses on doing underarm turns where the follower does not start with a backwards rock step like usual but instead does a front step.

The second part of this video focuses on the Swing Out where the follower replaces her first two steps on count 1&2 with two swivel steps.

Attention: in this variation of the Swing Out the leader leads the follower forward on count 1 as opposed to lead her back into a rock step on count 1 as in previous videos.
