    Usage of jump

    There were a couple of girls sitting in front of me in the bus. They were chatting and laughing loudly and were jumping in their seats in excitement.

    Can someone please tell me if the above para sounds natural? Can we use jump in a seat to mean to move up and down in a seat? Also, can I replace sitting in front of me with sitting in the front seats?

    Re: Usage of jump

    ...bouncing might sound better.

    In front of me means immediately ahead of me; in the front seats means immediately behind the driver.
