Simply jumping rope as a child in a schoolyard is one thing, but showing off moves for a national competition is another — it’s something you need not volunteer for if you lack acrobatics, speed and creativity. 2007’s Doubletime introduces us to the sport of double dutch, while following two teams who are preparing to compete against one another in a competition. Having picked up awards for “Best Documentary” at both the Heartland Film Festival in Indianapolis and Seattle International Film Festival, this flick goes beyond strenuous legwork to introduce us to two leading teams with Carolina ties: The Bouncing Bulldogs, a predominately white group from Chapel Hill, and The Double Dutch Forces, a predominately black group from Columbia, S.C.
