What would compel grown women to kick off their high heels in order to literally kick up their heels?

What would captivate digitally-addicted kids to quit the computer and come outdoors to play?

Double Dutch is the magnetic force that entices children, teens, adults and seniors alike to jump for joy whether it’s a pastime they know and remember from the past or it’s their very first time. Double Dutch is a vigorous style of jumping rope that uses two ropes turning simultaneously.

The DC Retro Jumpers is the exhibition team of adult jumpers that is available for high-energy demonstrations and lessons.

The DC Retro Jumpers have appeared on WRC-TV, WUSA-TV, Retirement Living TV, The Washington Post, The Washington Examiner, The Washington Afro American, National Public Radio – WAMU-FM and in a documentary on women and fitness for the Department of Health & Human Services. The Adult Double Dutch Program has received funding support from the DC Department of Health-Addiction, Prevention, Recovery Administration and the Edgewood-Brookland Family Support Collaborative.
