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.
