Level changes can be made within the first two classes of the workshop. Please notify the JUMP desk of any level changes and we will exchange wristbands, if necessary. There will be a charge for level "upgrades" but NO REFUNDS for downgrades.

COLLEGE DISCOUNTS

JUMP is proud to offer a discounted workshop rate of $150/dancer for dancers with valid college IDs. Dancers applying the college discount must be registered for the Senior Ballroom.

One Day Workshops

JUMP does offer a one day workshop option. However, dancers that are registered in the competition must be registered for the full weekend and cannot register for the one day workshop.

One day participants can register for the one day workshop for Saturday OR Sunday. If possible, we recommend that participants register for Saturday since the Sunday classes are often continuations of what is started in class on Saturday.

One day participants are NOT eligible for any scholarships (VIP or Class).

Jumpstarts

UPDATED FOR THE 2015-2016 SEASON!!

Great news! We have expanded our JUMPstart program to a two day workshop and now also include a JUMPstart division in our competition. This is a great intro into the convention world for dancers ages 5 & up! The JUMPstart program is for young dancers who want to experience JUMP but might find the Mini Room too challenging. The JUMPstart workshop consists of half-day classes on both Saturday and Sunday. One free JUMPstart Observer Band will be given to the studio for the appropriate parent/guardian for each registered JUMPstart dancer. This band will only allow entrance to the JUMPstart workshop room, NO exceptions. Additional JUMPstart Observer bands can be purchased for $20.

JUMPstarts can participate in the competition, as long as they are registered for both days of the JUMPstart workshop. One day JUMPstart participants cannot compete.

Observers

Parents of registered dancers are allowed into the workshop classes if they have purchased an Observer wristband. All Observers must be attending with paid students only and may not be Teachers, Studio Owners or dancers. Observers do not have access to the Teacher room or closed rehearsals at any time. Observers are NOT allowed into the AUDITION COMBO CLASSES or VIP AUDITIONS. One free JUMPstart Observer Band will be given to the studio for the appropriate parent/guardian for each registered JUMPstart dancer. This band will only allow entrance to the JUMPstart workshop room, NO exceptions. Additional JUMPstart Observer bands can be purchased for $20.

Observer wristbands are not required for The Welcome Show, the Competition or the Closing Show. JUMP reserves the right to limit observers within each ballroom, subject to attendance and space limitations.

OBSERVERS MUST KEEP THE FOLLOWING IN MIND:

  • Make sure wristbands are visible for the JUMP staff at all times during the workshop classes in the Senior, Teen, Junior, Mini & JUMPstart rooms.
  • Observers are NOT allowed into the AUDITION COMBO CLASSES or VIP AUDITIONS.
  • Sit and keep all belongings as far back against the walls as possible to provide the maximum amount of room for the dancers.
  • No excessive noise or talking during the classes. It can be distracting to the dancers and teacher.
  • NO videotaping or photography allowed at any point during the workshop classes. Still photos can be taken in between classes, with the faculty, etc.
  • One day Observer wristbands are not available.

Parent Class

JUMP is the originator of the convention circuit's PARENT CLASS! All parents are invited to a VERY fun and informal intro to hip-hop class on Sunday afternoon during Lunch. See you there!!!

Confirmations & JUMP Handbooks

If registered by the 30-day deadline, studios will receive an e-mail confirmation detailing their registered workshop participants, competition routines and payment information. One week before the convention, individualized JUMP Handbooks will be mailed to each registrant. Each handbook includes a personalized workshop and competition schedule. Teachers will also receive all the convention site information, a master teacher's schedule, studio code, CD labels and other important information regarding the weekend.

IMPORTANT: If there are too many entries to compete all the routines on Saturday, anyone registering for a solo or duo/trio must be available to perform on Fridays after 4pm. If JUMP decides to schedule any solos or duo/trios before 4pm on Friday and a routine decides not to perform, JUMP will provide a full refund. In some cities, there might be Group Competition on Friday after 4pm. If this happens, we will do our best to notify the studio at least two weeks prior. There will NEVER be Group Competition on Friday before 4pm.
