Background

The Double Dutch Performing Group known as "Jumpers In Command" has traveled to countries all over the world including; France, Japan, Germany, South Africa, South America, and just recently the West Indies. Their teams have also performed in a number of entertainment areas including; television, amusement parks, theaters, and commercials. They have performed in The UniverSoul Circus and have been featured in a number of documentaries. Members of the group have been involved with the Disney production of the movie "Jump In". They have also been featured in a number of magazine and newspaper articles.

Mr. Larry Adelson, a classroom teacher in PS 268, Brooklyn N.Y. started the group in or around  1980. He was looking for an activity that all children could enjoy at a very low financial cost. Double dutch jump rope seemed to be a great choice. His double dutch groups have won the greatest number of tournaments throughout the last few decades. Originally from Brooklyn New York, the group has had many other members from a number of various locations, including Japan. Mr. Adelson has retired, however, still remains in touch with the members of his fabulous teams. They have also performed as the Dynamic Diplomats of Double Dutch. Their performances have been called " street ballet" within two twirling ropes.

Stephone Webb is presently involved in coaching and training the double dutch jump rope groups. He has been with Jumpers in Command since the early 1980's. Stephone is considered, by many, as one of the world's premier double dutch performers and trainers. Routines include gymnastics, acrobatics and synchronized dance. The group's young people help to promote a positive image for youth and young adults across the world. They have also performed as the Dynamic Diplomats of Double Dutch (DDDD), and have attempted to spread the joy of the sport throughout the world. [1]

Audition

Jumpers in Command's audition in Episode 1105 consisted of performing Double Dutch tricks such as dancing and hopping over members' backs into the ropes. Howie Mandel, Mel B, and at least one other judge voted "Yes," sending the group to the Judge Cuts.

Judge Cuts

Jumpers in Command's Judge Cuts performance in Episode 1107 consisted of performing more Double Dutch tricks. Unfortunately, members of the group stumbled twice during the act. The group's performance was not strong enough for the judges to send it to the Quarterfinals, eliminating it from the competition along with Miniotics, Cory Kahaney, Rory Freeman, Axel Perez, and Raii and Whitney Smith.
