Leg-Up Hop 1/2

Balance beam

Skill type

Known as
Leg-up hop 1/2
L-hop 1/2

While the leg-up hop has become an increasingly popular option on floor as a dance element for those who aren’t so…dance element-y, it has not caught on in nearly the same way on beam, where the level of precision required to land this thing on one foot precludes gymnasts from wanting to try it for just B value. There are many upon many B dance elements to choose from, and no one wants to play capture-the-flag with this one.

We’re all fine with that because, if floor is any indication, leg-up dance elements aren’t great.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
