Summary
Women with names like Smooth, Heart, Sassy, and Lady Di are the core of the Double Dutch Divas, a team that has mastered the art of jumping and dancing double Dutch during their twenty years together. They are a real life example of sisterhood at its best. Giving show stopping performances in the US and abroad, they bring fitness and fun to a multitude of people of all ethnicities. The game of double Dutch is an urban game where two ropes turn simultaneously in egg-beater fashion and one or more persons jump in the middle. Practiced and performed by both women and men, it is still a game where women shine. Age doesn t stop a Double Dutch Diva. The oldest jumper is forty-nine. They're married, they're single, they're mothers, they're stress-ridden career people - nothing keeps them from enjoying their sense of "can-do" and fun that inspires audiences everywhere. The featured groups of jumpers include Stan's Baby Pepper Steppers, The McDonald's Dynamos, and The Double Dutch Divas as well as scenes from Skip Blumberg's film "Pick Up Your Feet: The Double Dutch Show." And interviews with Ulysses F. Williams, Vy Higginsen and Kyra D. Gaunt, Ph.D. examine the Double Dutch phenomenon
