YALLER GAL
Of course, the standard swing is always twice around. But in this dance most men are contented to swing each girl just once. However, expert swingers swing each girl twice around, advancing to the next couple as they swing, and hardly losing a second as they change and swing the next girl with the intoxi≠cation of a whirling dervish.

This is the "swingingest" dance there is. Some men get so dizzy that they cannot carry through to the end. There≠fore it is sometimes wise to send the first man around once (three swings), then the second, third, and fourth men, each with three swings, which gets all the ladies safely home at last.
