Welcome to the MJPI

The Modern Jive Points Index (MJPI) is a system to track the progress of competitors in Modern Jive dance competitions.

The main benefits are:

  • A competitor can earn points at any event they attend
  • Elevation is based on performance
  • There are separate levels for leading and following
  • Recognised throughout Australia and New Zealand

When dancers join the MJPI they are allocated a number of points that represents where they are on their competition journey and corresponds to one of the four available levels.


The MJPI comprises four levels:

LevelDancer / Competitor
1Newcomer / Beginner
3Experienced / Early Advanced
4Advanced / Champion
Regular Events

We recognise Modern Jive competitions everywhere. Competitions so far included:

= Affiliated, = Non-affiliated


Affiliated competitions can offer the full benefits of the MJPI such as,

  • Consistent levels independent of a dancer's studio or country
  • Tracking of progress throughout a competition
  • Access to judges' scores where the event directors have permitted it
