Tuck Jump 1/2

Balance beam

Skill type

Known as
Tuck jump 1/2
Tuck 1/2
Hop 1/2

Interestingly, the basic tuck jump with no twisting does not get to be a skill on beam. It’s considered too easy, and…fair. It is too easy. The first tucked dance element in the code is the tuck jump with 1/2 turn at a B value, and because it’s quite a simple element that receives B value, we have started seeing it as a filler element in mixed series to gain a tenth in bonus.

I think it’s fair to say this is the easiest dance element that gets a B rating…so you would. I’m just surprised more people don’t.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
