Notes:

  • Pass The Sea is a 3-part call. EN: 40
  • Pass The Sea is the same as Pass The Ocean except that you step to a Left-hand Wave instead of a Right-hand Wave. EN: 50
  • Ocean means Right, Sea means LeftEN: 60
    • Pass The Ocean: Pass Thru; 1/4 In; (Right) Touch.
    • Pass The Sea: Pass Thru; 1/4 In; Left Touch.
  • When dancing Pass The Sea, blend the 3-parts into one smooth movement. EN: 70
  • From a R-H Wave, Pass The Sea feels different because the Pass Thru is very quick ('rear-back' if you need to see where you are). In this case, the Pass Thru is the same as a Step Thru. EN: 80
  • Be sure that the ending formation is a Left-hand Wave! EN: 90
