The cadences are familiar to playgrounds across America: knees pumping, ropes whirling at blinding speed, the martial sing-song of the double-dutch rhyme.  But less well-known, to many, is that there are two rope-jumping Americas.  In this heart-pounding documentary by Stephanie Johnes, jump-rope sheds its segregated history as the Bouncing Bulldogs and Double Dutch Forces meet for the first time on stage at Harlems Apollo Theater. The thrilling conclusion proves that sometimes just telling the story can change the ending!

Marvel at the moves of Philadelphias own dynamic double dutchers before and after the film! Ropes will be available for jumping, in case you want to give it a twirl.
