Welcome to the new
Jump Encore! is an extension of Jump Dance Company in Lakewood Ranch. Jump Encore! was developed in 2010 by Jump Dance Company's owner Kerry Mynatt. It has been under the direction of Kristina Kennedy Babcock for the last 8 years. Jump Encore! is one of Lakewood Ranch and Bradenton's leading children's theater programs producing 2 children's productions a year. Jump Encore!'s children's theatre program creates theatre experiences that educate, challenge, and inspire their students. In June 2021, Jump Encore! announced they would be expanding their program to include a professional adult performance company. Our mission is to educate and stimulate the minds and imaginations of our audience of all ages through high-quality productions, year-round education, and community outreach.
Great theatre is about challenging how we think
and encouraging us to fantasize
about a world we aspire to - Willem Defoe
