From Facing Couples (or a R-H Wave).

Pass Thru; 1/4 In; Left Touch.

Ends in a L-H Wave.

Alternate definition:
Pass Thru; Face Your Partner; Left Step To A Wave.

From Facing Couples:

Pass The Sea
Pass Thru
1/4 In
Left Touch
From a R-H Wave:

Pass The Sea
Pass Thru
1/4 In
Left Touch

  • Pass The Sea is a 3-part call.
  • 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.
  • Ocean means Right, Sea means Left.
    • 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.
  • 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.
  • Be sure that the ending formation is a Left-hand Wave!

1/4 In [A1] (Jim Faulkenberry and Clarence Watson 1959): From a Couple or Mini-Wave. Turn 90° in place toward the adjacent dancer. Ends in Facing Dancers.

Pass The Ocean [Mainstream] (Holman Hudspeth 1965): From Facing Couples. Pass Thru; 1/4 In; Touch (Step To A R-H Wave). Ends in a R-H Wave.
