Lesson 13: Smooth Swing Outside Turn

Here is your first turn in Smooth Swing. Have fun!

Helpful tips

  • Dropping the hand is a key signal for this turn. Leaders need to clearly articulate this signal, and followers need to wait for the signal before going into the turn. 

  • Both dancers need to keep their eyes up in the turn. It's tempting to look down, but after you practice the footwork you can trust that your feet are doing the right thing. Project confidence and keep those eyes off the ground!
