I call them:
* As the first dance when there are lots of beginners. Quite often they will dance with each other, so doing a dance with only a Neighbour Swing means that they get to learn to swing with lots of other people before doing a Partner Swing dance together.
* When I am working with older groups who don’t enjoy swinging as much as when they were younger.
* For variety! I get so bored with half a dance being taken up by N B&S, Cir 3/4, P Sw or N B&S, Men Alle L 1.5, P Sw. There are lots of other wonderful moves to fill your dance with!
Don’t get me wrong, I love to swing, but not everyone wants it all the time.
No, I don’t usually tell them in advance. They probably aren’t listening anyway :-) If that happens to me with a favourite swinging partner then we usually agree that that dance didn’t count and we have another one together.
I work a lot with older and less experienced dancers who don’t need or want to swing in every dance, so none of these have a Partner Swing:
Some of them are training dances to teach certain moves and are aimed at beginners.
