This dance is danced to Boot Scootin Boogie by Brooks & Dunn. 

Footwork:

Right foot – tap heel twice: Standing on your left foot with your right foot in front of you tap your heel down twice.

Left foot – tap heel twice: Switch legs and stand on your right foot while your left foot is in front and tap your heel down twice.

Right foot – tap heel once: Standing on your left foot with your right foot in front of you tap your heel down once.

Left foot – tap heel once: Quickly switch legs and stand on your right foot while your left foot is in front and tap your heel down once.

Right foot – tap heel once and hitch kick: Quickly switch your feet again. Standing on your left foot with your right foot in front of you tap your heel down once. After you tap your heel your right foot is still free. You will bend your knee and cross it in front of your left leg. As you do this you will turn on your left foot a 1/4 of a turn to the left.

Grapevine to the right: Now you should be facing a new direction. With your right foot that is still free you will take step to the right. Left foot then crosses behind, right foot to the side and then bring your left foot to close to your right foot and clap your hands.

Grapevine to the left: Next, step to the left, right foot steps and crosses behind, left foot to the side and then bring your right foot to close to your left foot and clap your hands.

Forward shuffle step with Lasso: Next, take a step forward with your right foot. Left foot takes a step and is positioned to the side and behind the right foot for a little shuffle step. Repeat right foot forward and left foot step together. During this step you can raise your right arm and move your hand to make a circle like you have a rope in your hand and you are lassoing that rope.

Hop step back – 4 times: Next take four small hop steps back. You can do this with feet together or you can hop back with one foot at a time and just changing weight between the two feet. You will do this for 4 counts.

 That is the end of the sequence.

You will continue to repeat this sequence until the end of the song.
