Swing

A Swing in Country Dance terms is where a couple will link to turn each other round. It takes many forms, mainly in the hold.

The hold may be:

  • Link arms (both right or both left)
  • Cross hands
  • Ballroom hold
  • Arms clasped behind each other's back

A Swing is also a type of dance similar to a Quickstep in some variants and a Jive in others. It is known in Sequence Dancing, Country And Western and Cajun
