 Swing Chain Thru


From two parallel waves or eight chain thru formation: All arm turn half, centers Single Hinge, then the centers in the wave across the set Trade to Single Hinge with the wave end. Finishes in parallel waves. Note: This movement was invented first but was almost immediately overshadowed at workshops by Spin Chain Thru. At the time, the 1/4 turns seemed to happen too quickly. Today, dancers are much more comfortable with 1/4 turns (Single Hinges) than they were then.

Deuce Williams 1967
