Jump In! – Learning the Ropes with Corbin Bleu and Keke Palmer

It’s great to see that there is a lot of buzz surrounding the Disney movie Jump In! I’m impressed with how well Disney did their homework on the sport. Of course some things had to be somewhat contrived for the sake of the movie, but overall I thought they represented Jump Rope very well.

Even though some of the more advanced moves were performed by stunt doubles, the actors definitely did their share of training before filming started. I’m impressed with what they learned in a relatively short amount of time. In this video Corbin Bleu and Keke Palmer talk a little about the training process.

Jump In with Corbin Bleu – Double Dutch on Live with Regis and Kelly

The new Disney movie Jump In may be the most exciting thing to happen in Jump Rope since the U.S. Nationals began airing on ESPN in 1996. The entire Jump Rope community is buzzing with the attention that this movie has brought to our sport. According the The Houston Chronicle, the original airing of Jump In had 8.17 million viewers, which makes it the most watched program in Disney history. As a result, interest in the sport of Jump Rope has skyrocketed in recent months.

Corbin Bleu, the star of Jump In, appeared on Live with Regis and Kelly in early January to promote the movie. The impressive thing is that he learned to do his own jumping for the movie in a relatively short time. He demonstrated some of his new skills for Regis and Kelly.
