I don't think you should make an ocean wave. To get a satisfying swing the
dancers will have to do the arm turns as you describe. You have three arm
turns which comes to 6 beats and I always allow for two extra beats when there
are busy transitions so the dancers would get approx and 8 beat swing, maybe
more with energetic, experienced dancers.
