Notes:
  • Split Swap should be visualized as a Lead Right while doing a Half Sashay. Think about moving counter-clockwise one position while turning 1/4 to the Right.
  • The above definition is carefully worded (i.e., as one movement) so that everyone can Roll. Other glossaries may have definitions in which not all dancers can Roll.
  • Split Swap is also known as Split Swap Around.

Alternative definitions:

Split Swap:
As one movement, Belles Walk as Beaus Dodge; all 1/4 Right.

Reverse Split Swap:
As one movement, Beaus Walk as Belles Dodge; all 1/4 Left.

Shake & Rattle [C3B] (Lee Kopman 1978): From any 2 x 2. Leaders Shakedown as Trailers Reverse Split Swap. Ends in a 2 x 2.
