Christchurch Modern Jive Championships

That's it for 2019 - we hope you had a great time!

A BIG Thank you to:

  • all competitors, judges and spectators for coming to our competition.
  • all our support crew for making it happen.

See you at the OMJ Winter Weekender in July or Champs next year!

The Christchurch Modern Jive Championships (or Chch Champs) is one of the most popular Modern Jive competitions in Australasia with over 200 competitors regularly attending.

We're looking forward to welcoming you back to Papa Hou at the Central YMCA, Central Christchurch with our 3 day format(there's no need to attend all three days in order to attend or compete).

  • Friendly, welcoming atmosphere.
  • Great variety of music.
  • Fanatical attention to detail.

If you're aiming to survive the whole weekend, give yourself a day off on Monday, take time to recover and savour the amazing time you will have had.

If you're visiting take the time to have a look around on the Monday and see how our new city is taking shape or visit some of the many attractions we have here.
