Unlocked by hylndlas (107168) on 2006-03-13 19:04:54 I am going to be nice and unlock this.....I too think this is a great example of something to shoot for!
Made sticky by hylndlas (107168) on 2006-03-13 19:06:10 A wonderful leap! Something we all should strive for!!!
Edited by hylndlas (107168) on 2006-03-13 19:07:03 There you go!

I thought this was an AMAZING leap pic. I found it at the Highland Dancers' Association of Ontario site. www.hdaontario.com . . . I don't know who this dancer is, but what I do know is that if I ever ATTEMPTED to do something like that, I would pull muscles in my legs I didn't even know I had! :D enjoy!

I know this picture was posted on here a while ago, but can't track down the thread, as it had the dancer's name in it.

I also think that the leap is amazing. Thanks for sharing.

Brilliant pic, thanks for posting. I appreciate getting reference sites for other pics too. Great to have a piper on hand, just a wee bit better than taped music I guess.

Amy was Canadian Champion in the 17s a few years back if memory serves correctly. Sheila Milne was her teacher. I have not seen her dance in quite a while; she really was a lovely dancer though.

That has got to be THE awesomest leap ever. I wonder what she thought when she first saw that picture, did she know her leaps were that good? I think I'd roll over and die, and do so happily.

I can get the side to side extention on leaps like that If I'm really warmed up, but my feet tend to not be pointed and my knees end up facing straight forward.
What's elegant about her leap is that not only is it HUGE, it's done with PERFECT form.

I have a lot of flexibility but no strength, so even though I can almost do the splits, my leaps are no where NEAR that good in the air. If I remember to point my feet, I'm happy!

That's a great leap and a great picture.
Beautiful!

That is one BEAUTIFUL leap! I only hope that my daughter can someday learn to leap like that. She's gorgeous.

I wish I could leap like this! A lot of practice and a few pounds off would be a big help for me.

I think that has to be a perfect picture of a leap. She has power, control, turnout and flexiblity all with such grace. Amazing picutre!!!

She also has great posture. I always tend to lean either forward of backwards while leaping.

Amy is a beautiful dancer. She hasn't danced with our studio for awhile now. I work with Amy's dad and I sent the link to him. He was very proud and pleased. He has the exact same picture in his office!!

There was a discussion on another thread about leaps being too high, but this is high and still looks great. It depends on the control and technique.
