Swing music and your feet

The following are instructions for detecting hot swing rhythms:

Place the ball of your foot against the floor and rotate your heel left and right with an elevation of a few inches. You can alternate feet but be sure not to lose balance.

Additionally, if you prefer a heel on the floor approach be sure to only acknowledge up beats.
