JUMP Dance Academy was founded in 2015 and now offers a range of dance classes for all ages across Worcestershire and Warwickshire. The school was born from a lifelong passion for dance, with the aim of providing memorable dance experiences for children and adults alike. Our ethos is about nurturing the dancer and helping them to discover the individual benefits that dance can bring to them - whether that's enjoyment, health or academic achievement.

We take pride in our high standards of teaching, safety and professionalism through our affiliation with the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) and Imperial Society of Dance (ISTD). To date, JUMP Dance Academy pupils have a 100% pass rate with Merit or Distinction.
