Jump Roping Crew Saltare at ABDC Season 5

Look out everyone! Jump Rope is in the spotlight on the national stage thanks to a group of USA Jump Rope All Stars. A crew called Saltare has made it on season 5 of America’s Best Dance Crew on MTV. If you follow jump rope, you already know their names… Chaz Robinson, Tyler Perez, Lee Reisig, Billy Jackson, Lisa Brown, & Brittany Fortier. What an amazing collection of talent!

I just watched the east regionals in which Saltare debuted on national TV. Saltare absolutely killed it! They nailed their routine without a flaw, got the entire audience on their feet, and left the judges in awe. The judges were unanimous in their praise of the crew’s talent. When it was time to select which crews would advance, Saltare was the first crew to be chosen to advance to the next round.

Follow Saltare on their website saltarecrew.com and on Facebook.

Here is an in interview with the crew backstage during the taping of the season 5 regional.

Good luck Saltare! The entire Jump Rope community is behind you. We hope you go all the way!

2009 U.S. National Jump Rope Championship Airdates

USA Jump Rope has posted the airdates for the 2009 U.S. National Jump Rope Championship. Set your DVRs! There are several routines that I’m looking forward to seeing through the lens of a professional camera. Until then we have to make do with the cell phone videos making the rounds on YouTube.

For a preview of the level of talent you can expect to see… this is 2009 Grand National Champ Nick Woodard. I’m stunned by the Money Maker that he drops about 20 seconds into his routine. How does he do it?? It’s possible he isn’t human.

Airdates are listed below the video. Enjoy!

RSC Rivierenhof – World Champion Rope Skipping Team Show

This video was sent to us by Kristof Laenen from the World Champion RSC Rivierenhof team from Belgium. This is their award winning team show in the 2006 Toronto World Championships. RSC Rivierenhof has dominated the team show competition, winning the world championships in 2002, 2004, 2006, and 2008. The routine is nearly flawless and expertly choreographed. Their precision is excellent. It’s obvious that a lot of hard work went into perfecting this show.

Thanks for sharing Kristof! Excellent jumping!
