About
In 2017, a sheep was murdered.

Previously an exceptionally common D dance element on beam, the sheep jump was downgraded in 2017 from D to C, ostensibly due to general hideousness because there’s not really any code-based justification for the downgrade. It is a very difficult skill, but everyone** was doing it so poorly that its downgrade was largely celebrated.

**The exception comes if you are Chinese and your muscles and bones happen to be made of little jellies. Then it’s fine. Otherwise, sheep jumps tend to look more like this.
