Double Dutch Inspiration from the 1980s

Here is some double dutch inspiration from the fabulous 1980s — compliments of Malcom McLaren and footage of some double dutch divas doin’ their thang in NYC.

Double dutch required fast feet, good rhythm and plenty of endurance. To be honest, I don’t think that I ever successfully jumped into a double dutch game – but I always blamed it on the girls controlling the ropes. Of course, they didn’t buy it.
