W is for Waltz Jump

                 The waltz jump is one of the earliest and most basic jumps you learn in figure skating.  The waltz jump is where you do back crossovers and then take off forward and then land backwards.  Here's a video of me doing a waltz jump.

I've been doing this jump almost ever since I started skating.  It probably took me around a month to get it.  Oh!  And since I didn't get a chance to post my V video yesterday, today I got the chance to video my spin variation.  Yesterday when I posted the V post I said I was going to do this big, huge combination, but today when I was on the ice I forgot what it was so I just videoed me doing a different big combination, a back-camel into a back-sit then into a forward broken leg, and then into a tuck sit spin position and then finally into a one foot spin!  Here it is!! :)

Hope you enjoyed watching! :)
