a little bit about us ...

jumpup was formed in 2005 by Erna Kuenen and Debbie Gaddas as a response to requests from local parents who wanted quality dance classes for their children.

"Being parents ourselves, we recognise that at the end of a hard academic day at School, a child has a need for a fun, group activity that builds physical stamina whilst developing their social skills."

Erna and Debbie first met while training at the Stella Mann School of Dancing (London) and whilst their subsequent careers have diverged, they are now delighted to be working together, bringing their expertise to a new generation of young talent!

Our philosophy is quite simple ... getting the very best from our pupils by working with them whilst ensuring their maximum enjoyment.
