"Hi! My name is Robert Royston.I'm a 5-time world champion of country dance, working with artists like Taylor Swift, Carey Underwood, Brad Paisley. I really hope that you learn how to Hawaiian dance and experience what its like to move to America's music, and that's country music. So now that you've learned the basic two-step, were going to teach you the closed turn, or a closed basic turn. So what's gonna happen here, were gonna take our basic of quick-quick, slow-slow. Quick-quick, slow-slow. But as we step our last slow, that's my right foot, her left foot. Im gonna start to take the ladies a little more to my right. So Imma go quick-quick, slow-slow. So I kinda moved her out of the way. Im gonna do that coming right at you so you see what I'm doing. I'm gonna go quick-quick, slow-slow. So I just try to move her to my right 'cause I'm still heading forward. As that happens, as I move to the right on that slow-slow, I'm now going to start coming right up alongside of her on quick-quick. Kind of turn her to face line of dance as well. On the slow-slow, I'm going to face her. Slow-slow. So now I'm going backwards. Quick-quick, slow-slow. Quick-quick, slow-slow. Let's think of it like this, I'm gonna take the ladies and I'm gonna open 'em like I'm opening a door. I'm gonna open the door which is my right arm. But I'm gonna be the door that closes in front of the right arm. So although I'm opening the ladies, I'm closing the door. So from here we're gonna go quick-quick, slow prepare slow. Open, quick-quick, guys close, slow-slow. And going backwards quick-quick, slow-slow. Quick-quick, slow-slow. Now turning back around we do the exact opposite. I'm the first door to open and then she closes the door. So as we are going backwards, I go quick-quick slow, same thing on slow. I start to prep myself open on the second slow. She passes quick-quick, closes slow-slow. And now she's going backwards again quick-quick, slow-slow. So the first one she opens, and I close. The second one I open and she closes. So we can two-step around the floor, opening up, guys in front, stay here for a little while, have a good time. Guys open up, ladies close, and we are back to our basic. So that's the basic couple's closed turn. Have fun!"
