Notes:

  • Pass In | Out can be done by any two Facing Dancers (or dancers in a R-H Mini-Wave) with the restriction that after the Pass Thru, neither dancer is directly facing toward or away from the flagpole center of the set. EN: 50
  • Each dancer individually evaluates the direction (In or Out). EN: 60
  • After the Pass Thru, even if you are already facing In | Out, you must still turn 1/4. EN: 70
  • After Pass In, everyone is facing toward the center of the set. If you end facing out, then you did the call incorrectly. EN: 80
  • After Pass Out, everyone is facing away from the center of the set. EN: 90
  • From an Eight Chain Thru, a caller may call "Pass In Twice". Be careful if you start as an Outside: the second Pass In causes you to turn the opposite direction from the first Pass In. Re-evaluate your position before the second Pass InEN: 100
