Starting formation: Restricted at Basic and Mainstream to Facing Couples only
Command example: Pass The Ocean
Dance action: Pass Thru; Face your Partner; Step To A Wave
Ending formation: Right-Hand Ocean Wave
Styling: The 3-part definition is smoothed out. The left-side dancers walk in a forward arc to the right to
their ending position. The right-side dancers walk forward to join left hands (hands up styling) and
turn 1/4 with each other.
Comments: The application of the Ocean Wave Rule to this call is not used at Basic and Mainstream. It
may be applied in the other programs.
Even though the styling encourages a smoothed out dance action, the definition of Pass The Ocean has
three distinct parts and callers may take advantage of this in their choreography.
This call should not be fractionalized at Basic and Mainstream.
