Christchurch Modern Jive Championships

This was such a hit that we're doing it again! Not only was the 140+ category immensely popular but also the entire feel of the day providing a different but just as enjoyable atmosphere as the Saturday.

We have categories open to all competitors as well as some dedicated to Masters dancers (age 40 and over). There will be plenty of opportunity for social dancing during the day

  • Doors open 10 a.m.
  • Competition starts 11 a.m.
  • Competition ends 15:30 p.m.
  • Social dancing until 5 p.m.

Like any Masters sporting event the emphasis is having fun, not taking ourselves too seriously and having a good party to round off the days events.

If you don't have a partner then enter Dance With A Stranger (DWAS) and / or Lucky Dip.

The music played on Day 3 will reflect the style of a more mature audience - besides popular current songs we'll also have a good selection of Blues, Jazz, Latin as well as Pop and Rock spanning 5 decades.
