The Sugar Push

The sugar push is one of the basic moves of Lindy Hop and all swing dances.

The lead and follow stay where they are for 6 counts. The sugar push is very stylized, bringing both partners close together and then returning them to where they started, just like in the swingout. This is often led with two arms.

The key variations are the Jitterbug and Hollywood sugar pushes.
