Hi! I’m Simone Fisher and I’m here at Clearwater
Ice Arena in sunny Clearwater, Florida. On behalf of Expert Village, we’re going to introduce
to you some advanced figure skating jumps. What I’m going to show you next is a ballet
jump. On the ballet jump, we usually go into the jump with a right inside turn. We stick
our left toe pick in the ice and we spring off that leg. Then we extend our free leg
into the air. Basically, it’s important that we keep our back nice and straight, our arms
out, and then we turn out of the jump. That’s basically it. It’s a lot easier to actually
see it in action, so that’s what I”m going to do next. I’m going to show you the ballet
jump, so here I go. Like I said, it’s always important to spring off the back jumping leg.
You want to bend, bend, bend, and extend.

    I like ballet jumps they are nice grace moves and judges like seeing them. My coach also uses the reminder word "starfish" because you want a good position with your arms and legs. I usually do a ballet jump after a waltz jump. I land the waltz, set up and make sure I'm fairly sideways, bend down and pick in. This allows me to get lots of height on the ballet jump. It's good to practice this facing the glass if you can, go slow at first (you won't get much height while doing that).

    i'm pretty sure all the "experts" on expert village have no idea what they are doing and should no be teaching people the wrong way of doing things. just look at the ballet "expert". she's even worse than the figure skating expert.

    You're amazing. Thank you so much for teaching through Youtube.
    I'm a beginner skater and I'm learning a lot from your techniques.
    I'm going to skate today and try the jump.
    You're an amazing teacher.
    Thank you so much.

    That's not a ballet jump, that's a stag jump. Correction, a really bad stag jump!

    Isn't that a stag jump… I used to start my program with one from a stand still. Good job tho it probably has a bunch of different names.

    That's not how my coach taught it to me AT ALL. It looks nothing like a proper ballet jump.

    Never heard of a Stag Jump? the most popular jump of times gone by, it's nice to see it band in figure skating.
    Check out the jubee f loop (males of have in their program) I would love to see women do that same jump ~ it's glorious, and underestamated ~ s8, free :))

    People… Advanced basically means here that its not skating forwards or backwards. And advanced is different to some people than to others! Back off! Watch the freaking video and move on!

    you are right if the series title don't involve the word jump…
    ballet jump is actually a quite easy jump comparing to other jumps…

    I wish there was slow motion or a tighter view or anything that made this more useful…. no offense.

    Do you open your hips going into the jump or close them when you take off? It was hard for me to tell.

    i dont think she mentioned it but you are supposed to land on the toe pick because on a flat skate you will slip
