Ending Formations for Standard Starting Formations and Arrangements:

— In modern square dancing the most common application of Swing ends either in Normal Couples Promenading, or in a Static Square of Normal Couples at home. This applies to starting from a Right and Left Grand Circle, an Eight Chain Thru, Right-Hand Parallel Waves, Trade By, Lines Facing Out, a Static Square, or a Circle moving either way.

— Some traditional figures have the Heads Swing Their Opposite and end as a normal couple facing the nearest side couple.

— In Contra dancing a Swing may end in long facing lines of Normal Couples or with the Normal Couples facing up or down the hall as directed.
