Hilton Basic Foxtrot

At 0:55 the following amalgamation occurs:
-Open Telemark (SQQ)
-Natural Turn (from PP) (QQQ)
-Quick Outside Spin (QQQ)
-(Natural) Spin (Q)
-(Natural) Pivot (Q)
This combination is based on steps 1-10 of Foxtrot Variation #32 in Alex Moore's Popular Variations.
The original sequence reads: Open Telemark, Natural Turn to Quick Outside Spin, Spin to "Chair."
In this version, the Spin to "Chair" has been replaced by an overturned Spin to Natural Pivot.
The timing written by Alex Moore and narrated by Marcus Hilton in the video is the following:
SQQ SQQ &QQ QQ
However, the timing used in the performance is:
SQQ QQQ QQQ QQ
We do not wish to label the video as disingenuous, however, we believe it is worth pointing out the difference
between how a dynamic piece of open-level choreography is counted, and how it is actually danced.
