Swingout Clinic

Peter and Stacia go through some important points regarding the Swingout.

The Swingout is one of the most important moves in Lindy Hop and all dancers from beginner to advanced continously work on making theirs better and better.

Make sure that you spend a good amount of time working on your swingouts.

NOTE: This is a swingout that starts with a front step for the follower on count 1 and not a rock step wich is also a common way to start the swingout for the follow.

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.

10-count Swing out with footwork variation at the end

Ali and Katja show a swing out variation with a triple triple triple step at the end.

First Ali and Katja from Germany demonstrate this 10-count swing out variation – with an extra triple step on the right for the leaders and on the left for the followers. The move is then explained in detail.

This is an easy intermediate Swing out variation that helps you to build a more open mindset when it comes to swing outs – they don’t always have to be 8 counts.

Leaders, remember to slide on the right very clearly to make it easier to the followers to follow.
