A dynamic scratch night for dance lovers in Reading.

JUMP is a showcase of work-in-progress from emerging, semi-professional and professional dancers, at the heart of Dance Reading.

Aimed at dancers from all disciplines who love to craft their own performances, JUMP is a fantastic opportunity to present your work-in-progress performance to an understanding and supportive audience, to gain performance experience, facilitated feedback from audience members and dance professionals, and a chance to get advice and guidance from JUNCTION dance members and join the Reading Dance Professionals Network.

This is an open call for individuals or companies to present brand new ideas or work-in-progress performances, lasting between 2 and 10 minutes. If selected, you will perform your work in the beautiful St Bart’s Church.
