Rock Turn

The rock turn in smooth swing utilizes a closed frame and allows dancers to rotate around a shared axis, rather than trading places like other swing turns. Keep your arms strong and master that momentum to create a dynamic turn!

Helpful tips

  • Footwork needs to be precise for both leaders and followers, especially on count 3.
  • Both dancers need to have good posture and slightly lean back from each other in order to maintain their frame during the rotation.
