From two dancers of opposite sex.

Much can be said about how to Swing. Here's a starter...

  1. First, get into Swing position. Step right-hip to right-hip; right-feet parallel. Boy's left-hand to Girl's right-hand. Boy places his right-hand on Girl's waist, behind her back. Girl places her left-hand on the Boy's right-shoulder or upper arm;
  2. Using the same shuffle step as with normal square dancing, walk forward around each other. Swing twice around or so, then Boy roll the Girl out to his right to end as a couple facing the center of the set.

Notes:

  • After you Swing with someone, you become partners.
  • As you become more experienced, you will find that a better Swing can be acheived by keeping your right-feet together, and keeping your balance on the ball of the right foot. Use your left-foot like a scooter to move around the other person.
