The level 5 bars dismount is a fly away. It's basically a flip off the high bar. Macy has been working on it since December and unlike most kids who are worried about under-rotating and landing on her face, Macy is so small and gets so high on her swing that she OVER-rotates and needs Coach Mollie to slow down her rotation to land on her feet. It's something that wasn't fitting in the regular practice time so we grabbed a 1/2 hr private today to work on it. After a few tries on the regular bars, they went to the pit bar, which is a much higher bar but is over the foam pit. What I loved about this shot is that you can see her spotting the ground. She still has to work on straightening it out and getting those toes pointed but it's looking pretty good.
Here are some of the other pictures I got during that 1/2 hr.
I'm a mother of 2 girls living in NC. I've dabbled in photography on and off but really this is just for fun
