Carol Ormand Notes : A2: Pass the ocean: all pass through to a wave of four, ladles joining left hands with each other in the middle, neighbors holding right hands.

Swing through: allemande right halfway (with your neighbor, in this case), centers (gentlespoons, in this case) allemande left halfway.

Note: dancers must resist the urge to balance as they form the wave. There’s no time for that. Once they overcome that urge, however, the dance flows very smoothly.
