Organising Committee

Our Mission is to create a dance competition and dance based events that will help promote talent and creativity as well as building a network of extended modern jive families not just here in Oz but across the oceans.

Our Goals:

We are passionate about dance, and strongly believe in the power of dance to change the world, integrate diverse cultures and promote solidarity. Putting the beauty of dance into a competitive format nurtures those new comers to modern jive, providing a sense of achievement and adding valuable life lessons in self-discipline, commitment, breaking down barriers, self-expression and teamwork.


01 We are striving for excellence in promoting Modern Jive, providing detailed and creative development opportunities for dance organisations, dancers, and dance professionals.

02 We strongly believe that with our determination, innovation and our talented team of volunteers we are continuing to build on the foundation of the Gold Coast Champs.

03 With each year’s success, we strive to provide high quality, safe and accessible opportunities to get involved in the form of dance we know and love – Modern Jive.

Message From Our Director - Jason Sullivan

Dear Gold Champs Dancers and Spectators,

The Gold Coast Modern Jive Champs would not be possible without the work of our dedicated MYB volunteers.

Once again they set the tone for the year by helping us run a this event. We appreciated their unfailing attention to detail. With all the last minute snags, we worry that something will fall through the cracks, but they anticipated every contingency. Several participants commented last year on how well the MYB Team had organized the event.

We are fortunate to have Our MYB Volunteers donate their time on occasions like this. I express heartfelt thanks for all you do.

Because of this invaluable contribution, we're eager to say a big public "Thank you MYB volunteers! I salute you!"
Sincerely yours
Jason Sullivan
