In contrast to Valašsky Odzemek, which is dance to one basic song, there are a number of songs for Lašsky jumps. Dance jump elements are marked by vigor and ''angularity'' of some ornaments which interestingly contrast to lighter, softer ornaments. Students try to creation their own series of ornaments from the possible which are in wide availability in the study material. Lašsky jump is an opportunity for improvisation for all dancers, therefore each looks for their own unique style of Lašsky jump.
