 Swing Thru


From waves or Alamo formations: Those who can turn half by the right, then those who can turn half by the left. Finishes in a wave or another Alamo formation. If called for facing pairs, they step forward and do the right arm turn first. GENERAL NOTE: If Swing Thru is called when dancers are in a Left-Hand wave, then the centers first turn half by the right (those who can) and the ends and adjacent dancers (neighbors) turn half by the left.

Del Coolman 1963
