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. Hi! My name is Bill Shanks and I’m going to
demonstrate for you a Waltz Jump. When you’re doing a Waltz Jump, it’s very important that
you keep your whole upper body strong and straight. We’re going to jump up off of our
left outside edge, up into the air, and landing on our right back outside edge. I’ll demonstrate.

    my teacher always has to tell me to bend my legs, unless you mean comming out of it and the foot that's in the air. cuz yeah tht one is supposed to be straight, which is harder

    No, this is not a toe-assisted jump. Jump without using your toe-pick. Your coach is, for some reason, telling you wrong. Sounds like its time to find a new coach if the current one doesn't even know basic technique for one of the most basic jumps.

    @Cheybabyxo3 im in freeskate 1 and i can do a waltz jump very easily. just try not to get to forward and try to spring ur leg up high so you can turn and land on a bent knee. it just takes some practice and when ur able to do it, its pretty fun

    His backward crossovers leave him bobbing up and down. Is the whole point of sliding your foot across rather than lifting to avoid this? My coach is nearly 64 years old, and i reckon that if he made a youtube channel with all the jumps and moves on it, it would be the better than any video i have seen on youtube so far for them. Although at 63 or something he can no longer do as much as before :L But at his peak he was doing triple axels and competing at a high level…

    umm i dont think a waltz jump would be classified as an advanced skating jump. an AXEL would be classified as an advanced jump. besides the bunny hop, the waltz jump is usually the first jump that people learn.

Now everything is f*cked up…I can't even do a Forward Spiral anymore…And I have no idea where my coach is…Oh dear :/

    Very nice for all of you who can do it. But it isn't the easiest thing to do and getting it perfect is extremely hard and requieres a lot of training, so just accept that there are people who might want to learn it and to whom this is already a hard jump.

    @thebestbyme Actually this is the waltz jump … and this jump is pretty simple i could do it when i was 9… and you can atually go into the waltz jump without the cross overs but the cross overs bring more speed and helps you get into the air more.

    So, for anyone getting a wee bit cranky about the "advanced" title. It might not be advanced in the grand scheme of things, but it is one of the first jumps you learn. I think that adds a difficulty to it in some respects. I mean sure, a bunny hop. But this is the first real experience of your feet leaving the ice so it can be kind of intimidating. But fun! Landing your first jump is a really exciting moment, no matter how advanced (or not!) the jump is. Or how shoddy it is. Keep skating! πŸ˜€
