Connect the two blacks and the white from the switch.
Connect all the rest of the whites including the one from the fan.
Connect all the bare and green wires.
Connct the red to the blue from the light.
Connect the black to the black from the fan.

At switch
Connect the white to the fan switch and the light dimmer.
Connect the red to the dimmer other wire.
Connect the black to the fan switch other terminal.

Dimmer will control the light. If the dimmer is for fan control swap the red and black wires at the switch box.
