Moving DB between Windows servers with different MySQL versions

I have an existing MySQL v5.5.29 database that I need to move to MySQL 5.7.18. I reviewed several posts stating that I would need to first upgrade from 5.5 to 5.6 and then to 5.7. My assumption after reading them is they are referring to upgrading MySQL on the same server. This is not my scenario. I have a new server with a fresh install of v5.7.18 and I need to take the v5.5.19 database from the old server and import it on the new server running v5.7.18.

In this scenario, can I export the data as a SQL Dump from the old server and then simply import onto the new server without the v5.6 install in between? I am not looking to move the system DB's from one version to the other, just a DB that I created.

If so, would I be able to reverse the process and go back from the new server to the old server if I find issues?

Note: Both servers are running Windows Server 2012.
