The Tease does have a partner swing, but the experience of having a swing being
apparently taken away (flirt with partner, swing neighbor) has many dancers
thinking they missed their partner swing!
As to your question, very rarely. Dancers see the partner swing as a highlight
of the partnered experience, so a dance has to be pretty special to overcome
the grumpy feelings that likely ensue. There is one such dance in my box, but
it’s been so long, I can’t remember what it is. I remember telling them to
really enjoy their partner interaction, because that was all that they were
going to get.
