Christchurch Modern Jive Championships

A showcase is a choreographed dance for one couple (or triple) to a piece of music selected by the performers. So while there are no other couples to be in sync with, the performance needs to be well executed and be of a high standard.

  • At least one, but preferably all dancers in a showcase entry must be Level 3 or higher.
  • Showcases may be either a couple or a triple entry.
  • Music should be between 2.5 to 4 minutes long.
  • All moves are allowed including full aerials.
  • We reserve the right to preview performances before an entry may be accepted.

There are no heats for showcases, instead each showcase performs one after the other. Showcase are usually held on the Friday evening during the pre-champs dance party.

Floor dimensions are available on request.

Allowable Moves

All moves are allowed including the Death Spiral.
