n. a dance move invented in Melbourne in the 2010s. A bumsnap is executed, while dancing alongside another dancer, by kicking up a leg from the knee only, so that it rotates backwards and the front or side of the foot flies up to make forceful contact with the bum of the other dancer.
Barishnykov can move ok, but he never managed to execute a bumsnap like that ring-stinger.
