jsdancer Posted March 4, 2013 Report Share Posted March 4, 2013 (edited) So, I have a great difficultly with leaps. Everyone always expects me to be a high leaper because I have really long legs and really high extensions but the truth of the matter is is that I can hardly get off the floor. Whenever I leap, I have a hard time remaining in the air and often come down right away whether it be in a saut de chat/grand jete, tour jete or even in jazz class with calypsos and firebirds. Other dancers (especially male dancers) just float effortlessly and I want to be able to do that too. So basically what I am asking is, how can I stay in the air longer, leap higher, and get my legs up. What can I do to practice leaps on my own time too? Is it safe to practice on a trampoline? Thank you! Oh and I apologize if I made any errors in posting, this is only my second question so hopefully I followed all rules correctly. Edited March 4, 2013 by jsdancer Quote Link to comment
