"Hi. My name is Robert Royston. I'm a five-time world champion of country dance, working with artists like Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley. I really hope that you'd learn how to line dance and experience what it's like to move to America's music, and that's country music. So a really great, easy dance to do is a four-wall dance. It's only 24 counts called the sleazy slide. It looks like this. Start with your right foot, sliding to the side. You're going to go, 1, 2, you're going to do a little bumping grind, 3, clap, 4. Then, again, 5, 6, 7, clap, 8. Only once back to the left, though. 1, 2, 3, clap, 4. Then into a little rock forward, 5, 6, rock back, 7, 8. Yeah? You're going to do a half turn. You're going to go half turn, half turn, quarter turn to the new wall, step, clap. That's going to be 7, 8. And then it starts over. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, other side. 1, 2, 3, 4, rock, 5, 6, 7, 8. Half, half, quarter and stomp, clap on that last stomp. Yeah? And then it starts over. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. Half, half, quarter and step, go. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and back. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. Half, half, and quarter, and new wall. And it starts over. We're going to do that to music right now. 5, 6, 5, 6, 7, go. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. Groove and close, clap. Groove and close, clap. Groove, and rock, and rock. And half, and half, and quarter, and stomp, clap. Groove. And there is your sleazy slide. "
