  • Great variety of music
  • Fanatical attention to detail
  • Bean bags

Visit Christchurch

If you're visiting from out of town or even if you're local and want time to recover then we encourage you to maybe include our Champs as part of a mini break or holiday.

Take a day off either before or after - or even both - and see what is on offer in Christchurch and the surrounding area.

MJPI Qualifying Event

The Christchurch Champs uses the points and levels of the Modern Jive Points Index which is an open system that comprises four levels.

Dancers enter a level according to how well they perform at competitions rather than which class they attend socially.
