Double Dutch a sport in which one person jumps rope with two ropes and one or more people jumping simultaneously; this involves at least three people total: one or more jumping and two turning the ropes. while jumping the person usually does tricks that may involve gymnastics or breakdancing, it can also have fancy foot movements incorporated During the very early years of hip hop culture, double-dutch was an element of the culture, and young people, many boys do this for fitness and it is competed at world level, would have double-dutch competitions at block parties. After hip hop began moving towards the mainstream in the early 1980s, double-dutch fell out of favor as a recognized element of hip hop, although it remains popular with athletes to this day. Double Dutch has seen a resurgence in popularity as of late. The National Double Dutch League holds yearly camps and a Holiday Classic, in which teams from all over the world compete. Double Dutch is still a prominent part of the hip hop culture in some areas, and is becoming more and more prevalent in cities such as San Francisco and Seattle. The 2007 Disney Channel original movie Jump In! features Double Dutch as the central element of its plot. Jump In! features the Dutch Dragons, based on a real Double Dutch team from 1997 in Harlem, NY. On January 15, 2007, in honor of Martin Luther King Day, the Google homepage featured a Double Dutch logo with black children playing with white children, emblematic of the realization of Martin Luther King, Jr's "I Have a Dream" speech in 1963. Double Dutch can also mean: the girl uses the pill and the boy is using a condom while having sex, so they are double protected.
