Overview

A Brooklyn teen decides to trade in his boxing gloves for a jump rope after discovering that he has a special knack for the Double Dutch. Izzy (Corbin Bleu) is a teenager who spends most of his days perfecting his hook at the local gym. When Izzy discovers that skipping rope on the sidewalk is as much fun as sparring in the ring, he soon decides to take his fancy footwork into a whole new arena. Making the transition from a solo sport to a team sport isn't easy though, and now in order to prove that he can keep up with the best Izzy will be forced to hold his own against a talented team member (Keke Palmer) whose feet move as fast as the former boxer's fists.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
Brooklyn teen Isadore "Izzy" Daniels (Corbin Bleu of High School Musical) is a boxing champ following in his father's footsteps -- he's going to be the third member of his family to win the Golden Gloves. His friend and neighbor Mary Thomas (Keke Palmer) is practicing for the New York City Double Dutch finals. Her squad is looking good until one member drops out to join a competing team. When Izzy attends one of Mary's double dutch exhibitions and sees how cool it can be, he offers to become the fourth member of her squad. Assuming the name Red Hot Chili Steppers, the new quartet -- Mary, Keisha (Laivan Greene), Shauna (Shanica Knowles), and Izzy -- work overtime to be ready for the competition. Izzy is torn, though: His father wants him to box, and he'd rather jump rope. Eventually, he realizes that it's better to do what you love, rather than do what everyone expects. Slick dance and double dutch scenes highlight Bleu's remarkable talents, and like High School Musical, this Disney Channel movie is packed with original music. Extras include two featurettes: "Learning the Moves," which teaches kids how to get started in double dutch, and "Inside the Ropes: The Making of Jump In!. Two music videos, one featuring Keke Palmer, are also included.

Pulled in two directions, Izzy Daniels must find a balance between his passion for boxing and his promise to help his friends with an intense double-Dutch jump-roping competition. Live action, Jump In! combines themes of friendship, hard work, and individuality with energizing hip-hop music and impeccable choreography. This DVD was selected by ALA's Association for Library Service to Children as a 2008 Notable Children's Video and is the winner of the prestigious Andrew Carnegie Medal for excellence!
