You never know when you’ll need to do a hitch-kick. When you do, you’d better know how.
If possible, get a running start.
Stay relaxed. Don’t give it away! The hitch kick needs to be a surprise if you’re going to pull it off successfully.
The crossover determines the height of the hitch-kick. Note the arms serve not only a utilitarian purpose, but adds artistic brio to the balletic composition.
The kick. Again, note the arms. And the casual tilt of the head? Sheer poetry in motion. I am clearly not your average, run-of-the-mill hitch-kicker.
STICK THE LANDING. Very important. I know, I know, you were expecting the more formal pointed toe instead of the flexed foot. What can I say? I was feeling cheeky.
