Linux find command only in few directories.

I am using Linux find command like the below

find . -name "*pass" -ctime -20.

My question is, in the current directory I have so many directories but I want to find only 5 directories..

Like find filename like *pass* that are modified in last 2 days and only in Dir1, Dir2,Dir3,Dir4 and Dir5 and ignore the rest.

Can help how to find only in few directories.
