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 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.
