Known as
Straddle jump
Side split

About
The straddle jump has tended to be the least common of the major A dance elements used to fulfill the dance connection requirement, appearing in far fewer routines that the split jump, sissone, or wolf jump. Though like the split jump, the straddle jump has been upgraded to a B starting in 2017 so that it may continue to fulfill the acro + dance CV combination now that it is D+B, perhaps increasing its appeal.

Value
B (2017-)
A (-2016)
