5-6 Step R forward to L front diagonal, starting to turn ¼ R (5), Hold, finishing ¼ turn R (6).
7-8 Step L foot to L side (7), Step R crossed tightly behind L, should feel like a lock (be sure to lower on this step bending knees slightly) (8).
(Note: if this is uncomfortable on the knees you could just step in place on count 8.)

QUICK FOXTROT WEAVE 6, CROSS ROCK, RECOVER

5-6 Turn ½ L, step forward with L (5), Turn ¼ L, Step R to R side (6).
7-8 Rock L forward across front of R (7), Replace weight back to R (8).
Non-turning option for the above 8 counts:
1-2 Step L across front of R (1), Step R to R side (2).
3-4 Step L behind R (3), Step R to R side (4).
5-6 Step L across front of R (5), Step R to R side (6).

CROSS, UNWIND SLOWLY, QUICK SWAY 4 (OPTIONAL TURN, SWAY 2)
1-4 Place L tightly across front of R (1), Slowly unwind 360 degrees R end weight on R (2-4).
Easier option: Point L across R (1), Step L to L (2), Point R across L (3), Step R to R (4).
5-6 Step L to L side (5), Shift weight R to R side (6).
7-8 Shift weight L to L side (7), Shift weight R to R side (8). (Use body sway on counts 5-8, lower body goes L when you step L, R when you step R, etc.)
Harder option: After the slow unwind on counts 1-4 you will be crossed R in front of L, leave feet where they are and turn L 360 degrees, end weight on R (5-6), Feet part, sway L, R (7-8).
Even harder option: Think double spin! Turn L 360 degrees, end weight on R (5), Spin L 360 degrees on R allowing L foot to stay crossed in front of R shin (6), Feet apart, sway L, R (7-8).

Styling note: Foxtrot should be danced with a Rise and Fall action similar to Waltz.

Start again from the beginning.
