Notes:
  • 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!
