"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, the first open position turn you should learn in two step is a ladies outside turn. That's what we're going to show you right now. So, ladies outside turn. We're going to do the same prep that we did in basic closed turn. We go quick, quick, slow, on the second slow start to prepare her open just a little bit. Now, what's going to happen from here is she's going to turn. So, from that slow, slow, she's going to go quick, then turn, quick, then turn, slow, then she's done, slow, then we take the basic, quick, quick, slow, slow. Now, the thing about that is each step is a half of a rotation, ladies. So as I go quick, quick, slow, prepare slow, she's going to go half a rotation, half a rotation, half a rotation, half a rotation, to then finish quick, quick, slow, slow. And, leaders, what you're going to think about is kind of go and up the arm ramp of a freeway, creating a little halo over the head because she's such an angel. So you kind of go... just don't scratch your hands on the horns as you go around. You're going to go up, you're going to ramp of a freeway, create a nice circle, and come down the off ramp, right? So, we're going to go quick, quick, slow, prepare slow, quick, quick, slow, slow, quick, quick, slow. We'll do it one more time, quick, quick, slow, prepare slow, quick, quick, slow, slow, quick, quick, slow, slow. Let's go ahead and try that to music. Five, six, seven, go. Quick, quick, slow, slow, quick, quick, slow, slow, quick, quick, slow, slow, quick, quick, slow, slow, quick, quick, slow, slow, quick, quick, slow, slow. Just one more element before she's done for ladies outside turn. Quick, quick, slow, slow, quick, quick, slow, slow.
