For one afternoon, national and international communities, come together for a tournament featuring three categories:
- Speed & Compulsory (fastest team)
- Fusion Freestyle (double dutch choreographed with music) – participating Fusion Freestyle teams compete for “Best of Show,” the Championship Title of the Holiday Classic.

The competition highlights double dutch teams performing singles (three participants), doubles (four participants) and Fusion Freestyle (six participants).
This year’s participants come from Africa (Morocco and South Africa,) Belgium, Dominican Republic, France, Japan, Trinidad and U.S. states which include Connecticut, District of Columbia, New Jersey, New York City, North Carolina and South Carolina.
