So after a year of Swing Dancing mainly East Coast Swing and Lindy Hop one thing has bothered me, which is the inconsistency of my Swingout to the point that I have considered once I get the money to throw down the money for private lessons to fix it. While my swingouts have at least been in the range of mediocre to sometimes good at my local scene where I dance, I have found the few times I have traveled out of town they go from the range of horrid to mediocre. Until I save up enough money on the side to invest in some private lessons my question is does anyone have any advice how to improve the swingout in general? Or does anyone have any advice on how to work on the issues I have below? 1. During the swingout I tend to step or move forward on the second count, something I have tried to fix several times but subconsciously creeps back. 2. Often I will for some reason rush the steps and make the swingout very rushed. 3. For some reason during the 5th and 6th beat of the swingout sometimes the follow will get offbalance and moving her back to her original position will feel very awkward. Yes, I know most of this can be fixed by practice which I have been doing and am willing to do more. I am just curious if anyone has any suggestions on what to change, focus on or any advice that would make my practice more effective.
