The group's routines go far beyond double-dutch. Squad members, who range in age from six to sixteen, perform crazy stunts in various configurations, displaying great speed and jaw-slackening gymnastic skills as they launch themselves over, under or through ropes that whip about like severed power lines in a windstorm. No wonder they jump so fast.
The Jumping Eagles take flight at 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and noon at the Market at Belmar, located at the intersection of West Alaska Drive and South Teller Street. Admission is free, and other activities include cooking demonstrations and a fruit-and-vegetable market. For more information, dial 303-742-1520 or go to www.belmarcolorado.com.
