Let’s get technical … in this lesson Michael and Evita focus on the “Squared Off” position at the end of the first triple step in a Swing Out. We often refer to this moment as count 4 when we are first teaching the step. Michael really points out what to do right after count 4 as the movement continues so that you can know, or decide what type of Swing Out to create. As young dancers, Michael and Evita recall learning many different strategies for what could happen in this moment. This video distills the techniques that Michael and Evita use and provides you with some exercises that can help your understanding during the Swing Out at this transitional moment between counts 4 and 5.
