JumpStartMove have become known for their training in high quality dance delivery. Training programmes have been delivered in schools and for companies and professional dance artists.


Dance Curriculum- Sports Premium

JSM have been working with a number of primary, secondary and special schools delivering various packages of dance CPD. More recently JSM were commissioned by Enfield Council to support the making of a training film for teachers in the borough on the delivery of dance in primary schools.

Each package of support is bespoke and is developed based on individual schools’ needs. Support will quite often include a highly experienced dance artist being placed in a school to work alongside all teachers to train them in the dance curriculum including planning, delivery, and assessment and tracking progress. The dance artist would work with the teacher to develop dance plans that maximise the opportunities for personalised learning and differentiation.

Cross-curricular links are made using the new programmes of study and schools are left with schemes of work that have been developed by the dance artist and teacher. Support can also look at opportunities for using dance in out of hour’s provision. JSM can also deliver one off or a series of insets.

JSM offer CPD for schools across London and South Yorkshire.




“The CPD really developed my knowledge of dance. How to structure a dance lesson became really clear but also how to make it fun and engage the children. My confidence in teaching dance has really grown!”

Training for Dance Artists

JSM have delivered training for some of Britain's leading dance companies including Studio Wayne McGregor, CandoCo, Richard Alston Dance Company, Akademi and Laban DTAL.

Training days cover a range of subjects including planning and delivery, managing behaviour and creating a piece for performance. JSM are happy to provide contact details for testimonials on this work as the feedback has been emphatic.

Thank you so much for the brilliant training you delivered last week. It was so useful for everyone, pitched at exactly the right level for our dancers and highly engaging and relevant.


‘Both our pupils and staff feel inspired and motivated. It’s so impressive to see curriculum subjects such as History and Maths interpreted through dance. Children’s confidence in expression through dance and movement has grown tremendously. All sessions are enjoyable, Amy is a true professional, highly innovative and has changed the perception of dance at our school.

Each session provides increased  support and  professional development opportunities for staff through structure, cross curricular links but most importantly team teaching and expert knowledge that enables staff to continue to teach and lead sessions positively’.

Thanks so much, the sessions have been truly amazing!
