Demonstrating for me is Joleen Stevens one of our expert instructors. Note that she is starting in a 3rd position feet turned out and she is executing the preparation with the arms on the count of 1 her foot is going to lift up off the floor quickly, pass up to the knee, pass behind the knee and close behind the foot and the reverse coming up. Passing through the knee and coming down to the front. We are going to do that one more time again on the count of 1 quick, 2,3, and 4 are slower passing behind the knee, closing behind the foot and coming back to the front making sure the knee stays turned out the entire time. Beautiful Joleen, she finishes in a 3rd position and the arms comes down and that is our passe."
