Sugar Push

Like the Swing Out, this is one of those fundamental moves that can easily be learned over and over again. The tension and compression dynamics can always be improved & refined. 

Jig Kicks

Jig Kicks are incredibly versatile for expressing the music in a low key, but stylish way. They can be lead or followed both physically or visually. Do them in open position, closed position or even separated. If we were given one drink for every jig kick we've already done on the dance floor, then we'd have enough to buy the world a round of drinks.

Leader’s Pass by Heel Slide

With a great move comes the responsibility to have great shoes. Kevin happens to be wearing hard leather soled shoes with a built up heel provided by Saint Savoy. The floor also needs to be sufficiently slippery and ones partner needs to be supportive. Once everything is in place, slide your heels away.

Leader’s Send Out V-Slide

Slides need the right conditions. One must have a cooperative floor, a supportive partner and we recommend high-quality slippery shoes. Kevin happens to be wearing a beautiful pair of Saint Savoy Shoes equipped with hard leather soles that allow him to slip slide the night away.

Leader’s 5 Spin

The basic mechanics of this move are straight forward, but the styling and turning technique can constantly be varied and improved. Once you are solid with a single turn, try two, then three...etc.

Sugar Push Chest Lead

Is this a west coast swing move? Perhaps it's originally a Lindy Hop move? Maybe the dances are related? Most likely it doesn't matter. Find a partner and have fun.

Lounge Chair

Everyone wants a lounge chair and we all deserve a break in the middle of a dance every now and then. Leaders, be sure to provide a nice comfy seat for your follow. Followers, be sure to relax, but don't get too comfortable, the dance must go on before too long.

Reverse Swing Out Arm Hook Turn

Requiring precision, this technical move is fun for both the leader and the follower. It's less about flash and more about complex partner connection dynamics. This is the sort of move a fellow lindy geek will see and go, "Whoa, what just happened? Do it again!"

Leader’s Pass By Spin

Seemingly simply, but the internal dynamics are key to making this spin feel good. Follows need to make sure they don't pull the leader off balance. Ideally leaders will be centered and ready to spin for as long as the musical phrase suggests.

(Double Hand) Slide Through the Legs

Hold on for some sliding fun. It's a tad risky, but worth the effort when the conditions are right. Check the weather, check the floor and especially check with your partner. Not everyone likes to slide across a dirty, wet and sticky bar floor so maybe leave it for high-quality dance floors and known partners.
