Joy Jones is the founder of D.C. Retro Jumpers and author of a play about double Dutch. She has said that she was inspired to create the group to feed an “intra-generational exercise obsession.” “My vision for the group was to have adult women jump-rope for fitness and fun,” Jones said. “One of the things that really inspires me, still, is seeing women on the edge of a demonstration and see the longing — almost lust — to get in the rope.”
