Welcome to MAC 2016!
At the MAC we have all ages, all styles, couples from around the world, its an NQE so the top 65% of all couples will be eligible for Nationals and we will be having 2 WDSF events.
We are thrilled to again to bring you the Manhattan Amateur Classic, otherwise known as "The MAC." This will be the 26th annual MAC, with each year getting better and with a greater and greater representation of dancers from around the country and the world. The MAC will be offering all ages, Pre-Teen through Senior IV, in all 4 styles, and in all proficiency levels. The WDSF Junior II Latin and Standard will be held on Friday and Saturday nights, with the Junior II National qualifying events held on Sunday during the Jr. MAC. Mixed Proficiency is again being offered and new this year are the Same-Sex events.
Due to your overwhelming support and the better to accommodate the packed evening schedule we will be holding preliminary rounds of some events in the matinee session, as needed for time. Please plan on being able to dance those rounds during the afternoon of your evening session.
USA Dance is now using the same Senior age rules as the rest of WDSF. Please see our Age Categories under Competitor Information for details.
