JEWELS ADVICE – “As Abraham Lincoln said “And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count, it is the life in your years!”

March 20, 2015

I was asked to add this in my Sandyknows.com newsletter in 2011 written by an original swingout dancer from the DFW area. Now it is 2015, have things changed for the better, worst or stayed the same?

“Attention everyone that learned the original form of SWINGOUT: I apologize for my original statement of letting the dance evolve. It needs to stay in its original form. I went to a few events this month and notice that I began accommodating the women I dance with because their count was off and there was a mutation of west coast basic moves in a swingout environment. I'm forcing them to move in a circle and they are dancing on a slot, no tripling back or using and1 on their first step and many other mistakes like sugar pushing. They just began learning the dance and obviously they are being taught wrong.

You self-proclaim instructors are giving each other praises just to increase your pockets with these events and raping the swingout community of the purity and love of the dance. I CHALLENGE ALL OF YOU TO GO BACK TO THE BASICS.... TO SHOW PEOPLE THE ORIGINAL MOVES WITHOUT ALL THE FLASH AND TRASH. More than likely I'm wasting my breath because only the instructors who know they are teaching it right would accept such a challenge.

Where are the basics? Have we forgotten them? I dance with everyone’s students at these different events and there is a big difference between 2000 and 2011.

In 2000, it didn't matter what side of town you were on or what class you were learning from when we came together everyone can dance together with an exception of a few RHYTHMIC CHALLENGED PEOPLE. Because the basics was the same everywhere!!! Now many of you all are teaching differently.

I dance with or against every one of you and I know everyone remembers the original form of the dance. However, your students don't reflect what you are doing. Let’s get back to basics.

So if you are reading this and you are new to the dance, ask your instructor whoever he or she may be to show you the original form of the dance and if he can’t, there is a problem. 

Start-off/transition, Full turn, Half turn, Double turn, Behind the back, Walk and everything has the same count (12...123...123 or 12...3and4...5and6). These are the basics and everyone should be able to come back to this. Anything outside of these moves are modifications of something else added for creativity!

I'm going to take it upon myself to write and publish about your classes and rate them on a 5star scale based solely off the execution of your teaching of the six basic moves of swingout. My goal is to preserve the dance put an end to bad teachings habit. So instructors please get on board and tighten up your classes! This is good for the swingout community and eventually we can be recognized by the world class swing council (WCSC) as a swing category in larger competitions like West Coast, Country Western, Hand Dancing, Lindy Hop, Chicago Step, and Hustle.

If your instructor’s comment is "he is hating on me", well why would I do that? When I'm not an instructor or a promoter of one of these events and I don't stand to gain anything from giving your class a good or a bad rating! I just love the dance!You can pass this on or tag anyone you want to.” Remember also to “Dance to Express and Dress to Impress! Be sure to say Thank You” - Sandy B
