Not Trippy 

Wednesday, Jun 25 2008
Jumping rope is great cardio, but the art of Double Dutch brings twice the workout with far more space for individual creative expression. Or so it would seem, because the city isn’t exactly hopping with opportunities for those past schoolyard age to learn or practice the wonder twin powers of syncopated (and sometimes choreographed) leaps over two rapidly twirling ropes. SFC Double Dutch, comprising three-quarters of the street-savvy jumping troupe Double Dutchess, conducts weekly Double Dutch classes for adults and kids at CELLspace and Studio Gracia. Summertime brings the ladies outdoors for "Jump in Golden Gate Park," to offer a rare experience for everyone: a taste of the instruction they provide in fresh air and a green setting, minus the class fee. An exciting alternative to biking or skating that will certainly keep you on your toes awaits just off JFK near Eighth Ave.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
