    Hi I am Terry Dean from Terry Dean's Dance Studio. We have been teaching you the Foxtrot. Now we are going to put all the patterns together so that you can see what they look like combined with all the different techniques that we have done. This way when you are dancing you will know what its supposed to look like. Now, basic step first; slow, slow, quick, quick, basic left turn, slow, slow, quick, quick, promenade; slow, slow, quick, quick, basic left turn, basic step, basic left turn, promenade, basic left turn, basic, promenade. Now, we hope you have had as much fun watching as we have had doing it for you. Thats the basic Foxtrot. We know you had a lot of fun learning to do it. Main thing to remember is, if you havent gotten it perfect, theres plenty of dance teachers out there and plenty of studios where you can go and learn and get it done right because you always have to get your individual needs taken care of. So, the main thing is, go and do as best you can at home, but then try to seek out a professional to do it right. Remember, have a lot of fun because thats the most important thing in all of ballroom dancing is have fun learning.
