Storyline

A documentary film that reveals the divided world of competitive jump roping. The two top American teams, the Bouncing Bulldogs and the Double Dutch Forces, belong to separate leagues that do not compete against one another. After twenty years of separation they finally meet at Apollo Theater in Harlem, for a competition which features "fusion" routines where Double Dutch is blended with hip- hop dance and music.

Jump in for some fun

This was the opening night film at the Waterfront Film Festival in Saugatuck, Michigan.

Doubletime is a fun and energetic documentary following two Double Dutch teams who are heading to Harlem to compete in an international competition at the Apollo Theater. In the film we see some of the members from North Carolina's Bouncing Bulldogs and South Carolina's Double Dutch Forces and we meet the two trainers. These kids put everything they've got into competing and they are extremely impressive. It's unbelievable the things they can do with jump ropes.

The film is well structured showing all of the training that goes into preparing for the competition while giving some history to some of the kids. There are some great shots in the film showing all of the techniques and stunts they perform, it's really fun to watch.

This is an exciting film that focuses on an event that many take for granted. It's hard to believe that such wild things can take place with just a couple of people and some rope.
