If a Teacher decides to place a student by age, please remember all workshop and scholarship ages are as of January 1, 2013.

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).
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 two day workshop in the Mini Room too challenging. The JUMPstart session will include one tap, jazz, ballet & hip-hop class on Saturday only from 12:30-3:30p (times may vary).
The JUMPstarts will be showcasing some of their class combos on stage, before the competition on Saturday!
JUMPstarts can compete in the competition as long as the average age of the routine is still 7+.
Parents are allowed to observe the JUMPstarts FREE!!
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. Observer wristbands are not needed for the JUMPstart room. Observers do not have access to the Teacher room or closed rehearsals at any time. Observers are NOT allowed into the VIP Audition. Observer wristbands are not required for The Welcome Show, the Competition or the Closing Show.
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 rooms.
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.
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!!!
If registered by the 30-day deadline, studios will receive a confirmation letter either by mail or email detailing their registered workshop participants, competition routines and payment information.
