Dance Steps â€“ How To Swing
This is the basic step. The woman or follower is the same but using the opposite side (left for man, right for woman and vice versa; forward for men, backward for woman and vice versa). These steps are pretty easy if you practice it a few times with the music. Once you master
this, you can start learning the triple step variation of the dance.
For the man: With both feet together, take a back step with the left foot. Put your weight on the left foot, then shift it forward with the right foot. Next, step to the left with your left foot; step to the left again but now with your right foot (crossing over the left foot). Shift your weight back to the left foot, and take three quick side steps to the left. This is the triple step. Do the same thing to the right. Take a side step to the right with the right foot; take another step to the right but with the left foot. Rock your weight to the right foot, and take three quick side steps to the right. Repeat. Again, the woman follows the opposite of the manâ€™s steps.
This may seem a bit complicated at first but it gets easier after a while. Because the timing is fast, bend your knees and keep your steps small and light. Donâ€™t look down on your feet or else you will trip over yourself. Maintain eye contact with your partner and remember to have fun!
Listen to the music and relax and pretty soon youâ€™ll forget this how to swing dance steps guide and just start swinging on your own before long. Enjoy!
