    My stunt group can hit one and a half ups perfect and I really want to teach them double ups. Does anyone have any good technique for double ups?

    Two questions:
    1) All-girl?
    2) Do you start your 1.5 ups with the top girl facing backwards, or with the stunt group doing a full up & moving halfway around?

    I can offer some advice once these are answered :)

    I hope true double-ups, like this, become the trend for next season.

    Hi Nikka, I saw you are from Slovenia, I was working with Twist All-Star in Nova Gorica and teach a way to do Double Up to an all-girl group stunt. May be they can explain better to you or even show to you. They hit that stunt a couple of times before I leave.
