    Really good Chesty.
    I can see that someone is getting better at animation :)

    I really love the look over the ledge. You have a nice downward antic and then an overshoot. :)

    There's just a couple spots that stick out to me that you can polish a little more. I have a feeling that as soon as I mention it, you will wonder how you didn't already notice that.

    -The first arc in the jump is a little wonky. It goes weird at the top around f15. Try dragging the feet longer and then swing them through sooner so the ball doesn't feel like it is going perfectly horizontal at the top of the arc.
    -Check the spacing on the bottom of the ball from 47-49. Which frame has the biggest gap?
    -f133-135. The top of the ball is a little evenly spaced here in this push off. Try bring f134 closer to where it came from or even removing that frame altogether.
    -The arc in this jump is also a little off.

    But really well done - you can feel the character's energy.

    That looks so awesome. You could swear the ball has a personality and sentience. Well done!
