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.

Basic 6-count moves with different rhythms

Peter Strom and Stacia teach the basic 6-count rhythms: first groove-walking it (also known as the “slow” rhythm), and then adding the triple step.

The video starts with the basic 6-count but without triple steps. The “rock-step, slow, slow” rhythm in side-by-side position. This is also called the “groove walk” rhythm. When you add the triple step instead of the slow, you have the basic 6-count Lindy Hop rhythm.

The moves are: basic 6-count rhythm pattern, Basic step, Open position, Closed position, Change places (Side Pass), and Tuck Turn (from closed).

At the end of the video we replace the slows with triple steps!

Leaders and followers, make sure that you keep a bounce (pulse) going through your whole body when you do the triple steps; don’t just do them with your feet and have nothing happening with your body. Dance the triple step with your whole body.

*Side note: You don’t always have to dance the triple step version: if a song is quite fast for example you can dance the groove walk version (rock step, slow, slow).

Fundamental 6-count rhythm and basic moves

Peter Strom and Stacia show the basic 6-count rhythm with a few basic moves.

The video starts with the basic 6-count but without triple steps: the “rock step, slow, slow” rhythm in side-by-side position. This rhythm is also called the “groove walk” rhythm. When you add the triple step instead of the slow you have the basic 6-count Lindy Hop rhythm.

The moves are: Tuck Turn, Inside Turn (a.k.a. Underarm Turn), Belt Slide (a.k.a. Belly Turn), Cross-hand Inside Turn (Underarm Turn with a right hand to right hand grip), Cross-hand Free Turn, Cuddle, a simple hip dip and the Mini-Dip.

The last move in this video is the classic “Mini-Dip” move: it is a break move which you do when there is a break in the music (for example on the end of a musical phrase). Make sure that you clap on count 4 and snap your fingers on count 6.

Followers make sure that you continue to travel through each movement so that you naturally go into the rock step of the next move.
