Waltz Jump Video Update

So I'm working hard on getting my waltz jump away from the low wall.  Coach Dee had me start a different way, which initially helped me.  But now, a few weeks later, I'm finding that difficult as well.  It's so frustrating!  I don't know why I hesitate when I get to the "stepping over" part of the jump.  Here is a video compilation from my lesson on January 20, 2014.  We actually did about 20 runs of the waltz jump, but I had to cut some out of the video because Coach doesn't want to be seen. :)

This might be interesting for the viewer, too, as it shows what I do in a lesson.  Attempting the same move over and over, with Coach's feedback in between runs.  To the average viewer, most of these runs will look the same.  But believe me, they are all different, with different errors.  Some are better than others, but I left them all in there so you can see the effort it takes. 

I know it sounds weird, but this is FUN for me! LOL  Seriously!  I love giving it my best shot, getting the feedback, then trying to correct and do better.  I am quite sure I will be able to accomplish a waltz jump away from the wall this year...after all, it's only January, and these attempts are better than 2013's already!

Me thinks you are not just over-thinking the form before the jump but letting your fear of falling and failing take over and cause that hesitation which might do just what you fear - make you fail and fall. Find your passion and ambition and inner child and enjoy your skating and new instructions. Don't worry about getting it perfect; rather just let go and glide and spin.
