FUNDAMENTALS FOR FOLLOWERS: English & Spanish
This is an essential course that every follower should take a look at, whatever their level.
In it I teach how to do the Swing Out without a partner and how to put the Swivel variation on it. Swing Out is one of the fundamental steps of Lindy Hop.
Swing Out is a fairly technical movement that admits a thousand variations that will allow us to dance with a lot of musicality. The variations consist of changing parts of the footwork for other rhythms or forms. To get to make variations, we must understand perfectly how the step works. It is not enough to follow the leader without knowing what we are doing. If we are aware of our movements we can progress, improve and make variations.
The Swivel is a variation that at first can seem very uncomfortable. You will see how with a little practice you can integrate it and do it in a very organic way. The Swivel is not just a pretty move, it works very well within the Swing Out and makes it easy.
