Author's Notes:
In B2 the ladies should catch each other's left hand as they pass thru, and allemande left 1/4 , while the men should pass thru to the ends of the wave and give right hands to partner. "Pass The Ocean" is a modern square dance figure. The dance was composed to honor the marriage of two Baltimore dancers, Maggie Taylor and Jay Hobbs.

This dance is from American Country Dances On Line
