A waltz jump off of skates is not difficult and very do-able. The advice given is good. easy on the edge and leg straight through.

Did you know that the waltz jump is one of the most common setups for a Loop jump? (the loop is like a mapes but without the toe off and the free leg stays in front from takeoff to landing. The waltz then becomes the setup to get into position for the loop.
