  • Each dance must have a Partner Swing.
  • Each dance should have a Neighbor Swing or equivalent.
  • Swings end on 16-beat phrases.
  • Forward and Back starts on 16-beat phrases.
  • Identifiers are Gents, Ladies, Ones, and Twos only.

  • Gypsy is prefaced by who is active and which shoulder to use (Right or Left).
    (e.g., Ladies Left Gypsy, Neighbor Right Gypsy).

    (e.g., Ladies in front Mad Robin, Gents in front Mad Robin).
