Swing Rueda

Swing Rueda ist eine Chorographie, welche urspruenglich von der Tradition des Salsa’s her ruehrt, in welcher Ruedas eine sehr wichtige Rolle spielen. In Lindy Hop heisst die analoge Erscheinung typischweise Big Apple, bei welchem ein sog. Caller in der Mitte eines Kreises entsprechende Figuren ansagt. Die bekannte Swing Rueda geht moeglicherweise zurueck auf Jeff Miller & Elaine Hewlett in Dallas, Texas. Die Moves werden mit Handzeichen angesagt.Hier ein paar der wichtigsten Moves:
