Q: What do Jazz, Hip Hop, the pressing comb and double dutch all have in common? A: They all are distinctly birthed from Black-American culture! For most Black Americans children, double dutch was a quintessential part outdoor play. To see the aerobic game as an adult almost certainly brings back fond, nostalgic memories, the perfect Rx after months of being sequestered indoors.
The Elite Bklyn Jumpers, a team of 3 double-dutch jumpers from Brooklyn, sensed this as well and decided to start a weekly meetup on Tuesdays to recapture the nostalgia, laughter and aerobic challenge that jumping always gave them! And they are inviting anyone who is willing and open... to come join the fun!
