Small Jumps - Mazurka

Similar to a Falling Leaf, the Mazurka is a half-revolution jump starting on an RBO edge. The skater faces OUTSIDE of the circle while gliding backwards. When ready to jump, the skater picks with the left toe and leaps up off the right leg. This right leg "scissors" forward while the skater turns, then taps briefly on the toepick. The skater quickly lands and glides on the left foot following this quick stabilizing tap.
