Watching Double Dutch in action is like watching a fast-paced combination of hip hop dancing, acrobatics, gymnastics and breakdancing moves combined with Jumping rope. It looks amazing, exciting, dazzling - arms flashing and legs making unforgettable moves in the air - all to appropriately pounding music and with the constantly whizzing rope to negotiate.
Double Dutch is the professional entertainment team of Planet Jump Rope. It all began in 2003 when they started to perform shows as World Champions of rope skipping. Immediately the show was a huge success and DDF became a very popular international act.
So far they have references in over 30 countries and they perform about 150 shows every year.
In 2011 Double Dutch started the year in style with a huge show in Mumbai. More than 10.000 fans came to watch the DDF festival showcase.
The big breakthrough of DDF was the music video "Rise Up" (Yves Larock). The other major references are 8 BBC shows, a show at the first Formula 1 Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi and the launch of a new Mazda car for the world press in Geneva. In 2010 they received "the award of best artist" during the annual gala of the Russian State Circus.
The demonstration teams of Planet Jump Rope are trying to lift jump rope to a different and higher lever. Their philosophy is "different than others" and is based on show and entertainment. The crew members are carefully chosen and intensively trained.
