Faith Scott is the owner and artistic director of JUMP Academy of Dance, She grew up in Manchester, England and at 18 made the decision to further her dance studies at Phil Winstons Theatre Works.
She left theatre school in aspiration of following her dreams. Faith went on to work in India, featuring as a back up dancer in many Bollywood music videos and films (be sure to ask her to show you them on youtube!). She moved on to become a dancer and choreographer for a large scale production show in France. Her french tonge then allowed her to venture to the exotic Reunion island and close by Mauritius to provide the local schools with dance master classes. Her next stop (little did she know at the time) would be the definitive moment in her career.
Faith took a job teaching dance in St. John’s, Newfoundland. She quickly developed into the teacher we know and love today. She is a firm believer in discipline and technique. Faith’s life ambition is to share her knowledge and passion for dance with others. She is a qualified teacher with the International Dance Teaching Accosiation (IDTA) in ballet, Jazz and Tap and with Acrobatic arts in AcroDance.
