Jumpstyle is an EDM dance style and music genre popular in Northwestern Europe, United Kingdom, as well as certain parts of the United States. The word originates from a movement of progressive house music followers, and especially those devoted to its post-2007 European "hard" subgenres (as opposed to the 2009-10 American revival of "mild" progressive, which has nothing to do with jumpstyle).
Jumpstyling is often referred to as "Jumpen": a combination of the English word 'Jump' and the Dutch & German suffix '-en'. It originated in 1997 in Belgium but gathered bigger popularity in their neighboring country the Netherlands in the 2000s.
