Critique my most recent lesson?

This was my lesson from yesterday. There were quite a few people in my lesson, usually it's just another girl and I.

Self critique
  • My elbows are sticking out majorly toward the first jump
  • My leg slips back a lot
  • I forget to keep my heels down going over the jumps
  • Ahead of the jump motion
  • Land on his back before he's over the jump completely
  • Need to go straight into the corner after the last jump
  • I need to circle after I'm done the course instead of just stopping :/
  • Need more bend in my elbows
(I was doing simple changes because it's hard for him to get his flying changes this way)

You can see my fail at trying to get him to go into the corner straight after the last jump in this one

I was supposed to get a 5 in the first line but I was going too slow. I *think* I went long to the last jump, but it was supposed to be a 4 anyways lmao.

My hand were flying everywhere to the 3rd jump. Went long to the 3rd and last jump, cut the last corner....

Sat on back way too fast on the 1st and 2nd jump. Hands were spastic to the 3rd jump again. Chipped the 3rd jump and went long into the last one.

Critique away!
