What is Jumpstyle?
What is HardJump?

This Thread will tell you about them both and this will be the only posting place to post you HardJump of Jumpstyle Videos.

Jumpstyle: Jumpstyle is a dance and music genre mainly practiced in Europe, specifically the Netherlands, Belgium, and northern France. The dance is also called Jumpen (English word Jump + the Dutch suffix -en, meaning "to jump" or "jumping"). Jumpstyle also refers to a style of music to which Jumpstyle can be performed.[1]. Jumpstyle originated in 1997 Belgium. Jumpstyle is an off-shoot of the Gabber music and dance scene.


Hardjump: This is the hardest variant of Jumpstyle. The basic step is different from the others and the jumper has to pitch hard on the ground.


Here is A good example of Both:

HardJump: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezitO_HWd9Y


Jumpstyle and Hardjump have their own type of music.

Here is another example of the music:

As you can see the Music has a Hard Beat to it.


I will be posting videos of me soon doing a bit of both

is there really such a demand for this that it needed an 'official' thread?

Ow come on, I'm from the netherlands, and Jumpstyle is the stupidest thing there is, it was just a hype, for kids who don't have an opinion of their own.

Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everybody I've ever known.

There was one of these already, it died very quickly. God I love that .gif of the kid trying to do that on a desk in a classroom and falling on his ass.

Looks pretty fun I guess, but it also doesnt seem all that original. Do people do it in pits and such? I could see that getting annoying for everyone else really quickly

is this meant to be about the genre or the dance, or both? either way i don't think many people on this site would know/understand what either is, or care very much. there have been a few threads on this topic, and related topics, and they didn't last very long.

personally, i dislike 99% of jumpstyle that i've heard. those boing boing boing kicks don't do much for me and the genre just generally doesn't appeal to me. i've only heard a couple of jump tracks that i've enjoyed. i prefer hardstyle by far

i'm not much of a fan of the dance either but i can respect it for what it is, and can enjoy watching it when the person doing it is really good at it. i'm a shuffler myself so i understand why you choose to dance and the enjoyment that you get out of it, so respect from a fellow raver haha

as for your vid... it's alright but you look a bit clumsy. is that just because you're doing it on sand? maybe try again on a harder surface?

anyway i'll leave this thread for now and see what happens.
