A handspring is an acrobatic move in which a person executes a complete revolution of the body by lunging headfirst from an upright position into a handstand and then pushing off from the floor with the hands so as to leap back to an upright position.
Handsprings are performed in various physical activities, including acro dance, cheerleading and gymnastics.
The direction of body rotation in a handspring may be either forward or backward, resulting in a front handspring or back handspring (also known by flip-flop), respectively.
