Jump Rhythm® Technique is a vocally accompanied, rhythm-driven approach to dance and theatre-movement training. It was created by Billy Siegenfeld, the artistic director of Jump Rhythm® Jazz Project. Its goal is to immerse music-and-dance-loving people in the joys of full-bodied rhythm-making™. The beat-driven, syncopated sounds of the blues, swinging jazz, Latin, funk, hip-hop and rap inspire all exercises and combinations.

Full-bodied-rhythm-making focuses on using the body’s 4 primary “drumbeaters” – the hands, eyes, rhythm-singing voice – to express the energies we feel inside the body. In this way, Jump Rhythm draws inspiration from an Africanist practice – fusing the singing voice, percussive body, and drumming hands into a multi-expressive percussion instrument. These 4 drumbeaters (hands, head, voice) plus the feet and other body parts play sharp-accented rhythms against the “drumheads” of the space – that is, against the imaginary spaces surrounding the body, those on the body itself, and the actual surface of the floor.

Jump Rhythm honors another Africanist practice – using full-bodied rhythm-making as a way to create community. By sharing rhythmic energy with each other in partnered improvs and dances, we transform individuality into a pathway to community.

The holistic, injury-preventive concept of Standing Down Straight® functions as the alignment foundation for all exercises and combinations. Excess strain or “holding” tension in the joints of the body is reduced because Standing Down Straight® (SDS) creates a gravity-friendly, get-down relationship to the earth.

Jump Rhythm® Technique and Standing Down Straight®.
Using the language of rhythm to connect to
the earth, to ourselves, and to each other.
