get into the swing of (things), to

(redirected from get into the swing of)

get into the swing of (things), to

To become active; to take lively part in. This expression appears to be a nineteenth-century change on being in full swing (already very active in something), dating from the sixteenth century. An early use cited by the OED is by Thomas Huxley in 1864: “I shall soon get into swing.”
