The Ring Jump

To prepare, tendu your right foot forward from first position.


Bring your right foot back into fifth position as you plié, then spring into a small prep jump, landing back in fifth-position plié.


Jump as high as you can, extending your right leg forward and lifting your left leg into a back attitude. Arch your arms and upper body backward as you lift your head toward the ceiling.


Kamille says: “Make sure you hit fifth before the jump, and then reach all the way back using the entire length of your arms. Lift up and out through your chest and sternum so you’re not crunching your lower back.”
