About
Like its other A-dance brethren, the split jump is too anemically valued to be a countable skill on floor in and of itself.

Nonetheless, it has gained new life when performed out of tumbling passes for connection value (often hilariously—see above). Because it is simply a cynical tack-on to squeeze out an extra tenth, such hilarity is encouraged. It helps fend off the darkness. It has seen some decrease in frequency recent years as it now has to be put onto a tumbling element valued E or great to receive connection bonus.

From 2014-2016, the split jump was also a common selection for performing out of an under-rotated dance element in the hope of avoiding a downgrade.
