Calypso Leap

Leaps are one of the greatest thrills in dance. Dancers appear to defy gravity as they soar through the air. Some people come equipped with a natural ability for jumping, whereas some have to work at it a little harder. Most leaps in dance require remarkable strength, coordination and an amplified range of motion to execute correctly, and a calypso leap is no exception to this rule. A calypso is a turning dance leap in which the working leg is brushed and held straight, while the back leg is held in the attitude position. Although the description alone may intimidate dancers, we are strong believers that practice makes perfect. We will provide you with our step-by-step approach on how to perform this dance leap, as well as enlighten you on how you can make your calypso more vibrant in no time by utilizing the Myosource Kinetic Bands.

How To Do a Calypso

Dancers must stretch before practicing or performing a calypso leap. Failing to stretch can easily result in a muscle strain or other types of injury. If you’re a newbie to the calypso leap, practice sitting in a calypso on the ground. This will allow you master the form of a calypso while also allowing you to acquire flexibility for the leap. You can also practice in front of a mirror to visually see what needs to be corrected or tweaked in order to achieve a flawless calypso leap from start to finish. For even greater improvement, seek feedback from an instructor or other dance critique and whole-heartedly put their knowledgeable advice into action. It may take a lot of practice to perfect your calypso leap, but it will come with time and persistence. Be patient with yourself as you follow the steps below.
