Welcome to MAC 2018!

We are thrilled to again to bring you the Manhattan Amateur Classic, otherwise known as "The MAC." This will be the 28th 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. Mixed Proficiency is again being offered as are 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 Open level 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.
