Advanced Ice Skating Jumps : The Waltz Ice Skating Jump


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.

  1. i'm learning how to do a toe loop and salchow. I know how to do the waltz jump, but i cant keep my leg straight when i jump :[

  2. 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

  3. im learning it now my sister is teaching me it and i still hang on the wall. but, i can go fast and land in a spiral postion

  4. 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.

  5. I figured this jump out on my own, I don't even take lessons in figure skating. I even didn't know it was a waltz jump.

  6. its one of the only jumps i can do- i can also stay on one foot while jumpign from forward to backward and i can do a two foot full roatai0on in the air- sounds cooler than it really is πŸ˜›

  7. @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

  8. what's on the neck (at the back) of the one who demonstrated the jump? if it is the "rope" of the I.D., why is it staying up…

  9. wow thats horrible ice or horrible blades if you hear the screeching of your blade on the ice. LAMEEEEE!

  10. 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…

  11. I skate for 2 months, and i tried this yesterday, it was the first time to try it, and my friend told me that i did it totally correct, until the third time i tried it when i fell off with my elbows, they still hurt:P

  12. 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.

  13. umm i dont think the waltz jump would be classified as an advanced skating jump. besides the bunny hop, its usually the first jump people learn. lol, im at about freestyle 3/4, and my coach still makes me practice it πŸ™‚

  14. @showgrrl69 I don't know I just noticed it because of your comment πŸ™‚ but it looks like he dosen't know about it lol πŸ˜€

  15. I want to try this trick but if I'm just an Amature then would it be possable that I would end up with a broken ankle?

  16. if that's advanced, what isn't? a bunny hop? o wait, that's right. they seem to think that is advanced as well.

  17. can anyone tell me how hard this is to learn coz i would like to try it for the first time this week πŸ˜€

  18. I found this one of the hardest to do! I used to skate all the time and it took me half a year to even get anywere near as good as that. I've taken a year off though because of horse riding. 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 :/

  19. That's not a good sound, plus that jump was weak, you need to us more strength to go higher, believe me I'm a professional figure skater and I have done ballett for 5 years

  20. @TheGameMofos that sound was because his skates were sharpened, he was cutting into the ice on a string edge therefore making a sound, you cant do that if your skates are blunt

  21. 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.

  22. wow stop according to my recent experience this isn't waltz, it was a simple weak jump with no style and the cross foot where's it?

  23. @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.

  24. dude! Im the only 6th Grader in my district
    who can touched the rim.:) Thanks to that the
    program offered by the site:
    JumpHigher (d0t) info
    It has increased my vert by 3" in just less
    than 3 weeks! Ill keep this up so I can
    jump higher..:))

  25. no… its not like i was five, i was 12. because i started super late. they started me off as a junior (in my fsc, there's canskate, junior, and senior) so… yeah. cuz my friends told my coach im already pretty good.

  26. Ok… a few beginners getting a little exaggerated? Just because you can DO a waltz jump doesn't mean you do it well.

  27. 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˜€

  28. I was doing waltz jump in basic 5 and laybacks in 6. Yet some stuff basic 6 I didn't do right. I don't understand how I could do more advanced stuff but then still had trouble with basic stuff. still confuses me. XD

  29. NOOOOOO!!! He is dragging his toe pick! But anyways, i luvvvvvvvvv salts jumps so much. What level are you guys in? I am in free skate 6 (the last level) .Β 

  30. This guy is a terrible teacher, "i'm going to demonstrate this…" (performs it) Big help you bald fuck who can't do anything else with his life but teach ice skating

  31. for all of y'all saying its not an advanced jump, yea, its not if we're talking figure skating. but if we're referring to regular ice skating, yea its more or less considered advanced.
