Christchurch Modern Jive Championships

The Champs Team

Something as busy and complex as the Champs can only be achieved with the help of a great team. We're very grateful to have the help and expertise of the people below. If you're interested in getting involved then please get in touch.

Event Directors - Deb & Matt

We're here to ensure everyone has a great time at a safe, well organised and enjoyable event. We love being hosts and seeing everyone dance and build friendships with dancers from Christchurch and beyond. We're always open for a chat or to help with any questions you may have.

Competition Director - Deb

The competition director is here to help with all aspects of competing and judging such as helping you with rules, judging criteria and anything else. This is a bit like Head Judge but encompasses a bit more and is less scary 😉

Stage Manager - Becky

As stage manager, Becky ties all the pieces together, working with everyone with the team to ensure they have everything they need. She's also fanatical about giving the dancers the best experience we have to offer and works tirelessly to keep everything running smoothly.

MC - Zoe

Keeping everyone informed and announcing all the events is a demanding role. Zoe helps set the atmosphere for the entire weeked. Furthermore, Zoe provides invaluable help on all aspects of Champs from the planning stage through to the actual day.

On the floor

Our crew over the Champs weekend work tirelessly to provide you with the best experience we can.
