Bamboo Hop is a dance game performed with two nine foot bamboo poles or two 'rope-poles'. Two seated players strike the parallel poles in time to the music while the dancers perform various step patterns hopping inside and outside the poles. To master this dance and not to be caught between the poles is quite a trick, and requires a great deal of skill, rhythm, and energy. The 'rope-poles' are excellent for learning and practicing the Bamboo Hop, and for use in other jumping exercises. The 'rope-poles' are made of brightly painted hardwood dowels on the end of each rope. Easy to carry and store!
