19-20 March 2011
This Skip'a'Dance competition was part of the Double Dutch Delight
showcase at West Coast Plaza. The organizer flew in the professional
Japanese Double Dutch team Capliore to provide DD shows daily between
13th to 20th March. It was a super opportunity for Singaporeans to
learn DD from this 2 times DD world champions. Rope Skipping Singapore
participated with 3 teams; Jumping Jewels in the Open category, Flying
Kangaroos and DD Dancing Queens in the 18U category. The competition
became one category due to no show midway by 3 teams.
We practiced for four weekends for the preliminary round on 19th March.
Here our 3 teams scored 42, 31 and 31 out of a possible maximum of 50,
all higher than the other 3 teams. The next day at the second round
these other 3 teams did not show up. 3rd place went to Flying
Kangaroos, 2nd went to Double Dutch Dancing Queens and Jumping Jewels
are champions again. The last Skip'a'Dance story is here.
It was really nice to see Capliore in action with their brand of Double
Dutch. We plan to see them again in Japan for the next DDCJ.
