Olena Dzoubchuk - Ball 2002

 This routine was composed for Lena in the middle of 2001 when she was training in Deruigins school. Music was earlier used by Tamara Yerofeeva - Hijack / Nyah / Injection (from Mission Impossible 2) by Hand Zimmer. At first, Olena couldn't do this routine well and was saying that it's the most difficult routine for her to do, but as her masterpiece grew, she started to do all combinations quite well. She starts the routine in quite difficult position on balance, with helping her hand be on foot of working leg. As a start, she does 360 tourlent with body parallel to the ground (0,5) and 0,4 leap from 2 legs to split with back bent, where she beat ball from floor.   Photo 1

This pivot is quite difficult to do, because Olena turns in not usual right, but left way/ To finish the combination she does leap from two legs with turn on 360 (TV 0,2) were she does roll of ball (Av 0,1). Then she does some magical rolls of ball from hands on neck, stops for a second in this position and drops to the floor to start a combination there 
She does walkover with fixation of position in backscale (0,4), stag leap with back bent (0,3) and penche flexibility (0,3), where she throws ball behind legs with two hands (AV 0,1) and catches it with hand. Then Lena starts some magnificent rolls of ball over body, hands, legs. She also does a roll, which helps her gain score in artistic value - from legs to a hand (AV 0,1 photo 3) Then goes penche tourlent on 360 with ball lying on her back (TV 0,5 AV 0,1 - photo 4) and stag leap with back bent and turn on 180 (0,5). After that Olena does classical balance combination of 2 0,5 balances - high attitude and irobesque Photo 3

Then goes pivot combination ^ 720 pivot with leg high sideways (0,4), 360 pivot with leg high where she tries to put ball on top of working leg for a second (TV 0,3 AV 0,1 and fish pivot with turn on 360 (0,3 - photo 5). Then goes quite original throw of ball shut in knee. Then she moves straight by doing leap combination - split leap (0,1), ring leap with turn on 180 (0,5) and leap from one leg and turn on 360 (0,2)
 After that she moves to the centre of the carpet, where she does cossack leap with turn on 180, where she exchanged hand handling the ball, illusion backwards (0,3) and spiral pivot from one leg with turn on 360 (0,3). Then she throws ball again, does arch leap and catches ball in legs. As she does it, she keeps sitting on knees, does roll of ball from one hand to another, does 0,5 balance on knee with high attitude and cartwheel on arms. There she stands up , does tourlent with rond of the leg (0,5), stag leap with turn on 180 (0,4) and flexibility with back bent (0,3).
