Christchurch Modern Jive Championships
Masters Freestyle

Modern Jive has been in New Zealand (and Australia) for over 25 years and so we have a category for some of the older dancers to compete against each other.

You must stick to your role - lead or follow - for the duration of the dance.

40+ (for competitors aged 40 and over)
  • Both competitors in a 40 and Over couple must be 40 years old or older on the day of the competition
Split Levels

We have two levels based on the sum of the levels of the competitors,

  • Intermediate: sum range is 2 - 4
  • Advanced: sum range is 5 - 8

For example, in the lower group a Level 3 competitor can dance with a Level 1. Level 4 dancers have to dance in the upper group.

Allowable Moves

Remember - simpler moves done well is better than complex moves done not so well 😉
