Jumpstyle is a dance mainly practiced in Europe, specifically the Netherlands, Belgium, and France. The dance is also called Jumpen (English word Jump + the Dutch en which means "to jump" or "jumping"). Jumpstyle also refers to a style of music to which Jumpstyle can be performed.
Even if Jumpstyle started in 1997, it wasn't until 2005 that the dance has gained main attraction. The number of search queries in popular search engines, such as Google, has increased since late 2005.
In 2007 jumpstyle spread from The Netherlands & Belgium to France, Germany, Spain, the United Kingdom, Ireland and the Nordic Region which includes Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Lithuania & Latvia.
Jumpstyle is growing in popularity constantly and spreading to new countries since videos are being uploaded to popular video sharing websites such as YouTube.
Jumpstyle is performed through a series of steps, jumps, kicks, stomps, torso positioning, and arm swings. The dance is rather hard to perform, even if it seems to be easy when watched, because it is very cardio-intensive.
Jumpstyle can be performed in various ways:
"Jumpstyle has become a lifestyle, like hip-hop or techno. For me, it’s the best party music around. There’s no other style that makes you go so crazy and forget about all your worries."- Koen Bauweraerts (DJ Coone)
