Hundreds of Double Dutch jumpers hopped to compete in the 19th Annual Double Dutch Holiday Classic at Harlem’s Apollo Theater on Sunday.

The international jump-off drew teams from around the world, including contestants from France, Germany and the British Virgin Island, as well as some hometown athletes.

The teams battled it out in Speed events, during which they try to jump as many times as possible in a given time, Compulsory events, where they bust out their best tricks, and finally in Fusion, which combines hip-hop dance and Double Dutch.

In the photo above, Kernisha Bryan, 16, and other members of the British Virgin Islands Grasshoppers show off their best moves.
