DO IT ON THE FLOOR
Swing Basic Closed
The Swing Basic in Closed will feel most comfortable if you rotate it to the right. As we discussed in the Do it with a partner section, the man turns on the first slow, the lady on the second and then you rock together.
As you feel more comfortable with the rotation, you can rotate more and more. Get swingy baby!
Men - You can get into the Closed Basic from any open step by just scooping your partner up with your right arm. The best options for leading out of it are to just let go and move into the open basic or follow it with an Underarm Turn to the Right. Suggested Combination: Swing Basic Open, Swing Basic Closed, Swing Basic Closed, Underarm Turn Right.
DO IT WITH STYLE
Video 1: Change your rhythm by adding a tap to the basic step.
