MAC Sponsors:

The MAC is run purely on the efforts of volunteers from the Greater NY Chapter of USA Dance, a non-profit organization. The MAC is the only all-amateur event which regularly awards scholarships to competitors of all levels. We do so through the generous donations from our supporters within and outside the dance community. All proceeds donated to the MAC Scholarship Fund go towards awarding scholarships to the dancers or to help defray the expenses of running the event.

Are you a fundraising professional or would like to help us with our fundraising efforts? We can use your assistance send e-mail to mac@nyusadance.org!

We would also like to thank our VIP ticket holders, whose contributions go directly into the MAC fund to further dancing at all levels.


For many years now, MAC and Junior MAC has have awarded substantial scholarships to the amateur athletes who excel at the competition. At the 2017 MAC, we were very proud to furnish such awards to the top three couples in almost every level and style of competitive dance. Our goal for 2018 is to, once again, award scholarships in every event danced at the MAC. We cannot do this without the help of other dance enthusiasts such as yourself.

You can take part in supporting our DanceSport athletes through our Donation program. If you would like to make to send a message to your favorite couple, your message can appear in the MAC program. NY USA Dance would be most grateful for your contribution to our scholarship fund and we know that aspiring (and current) DanceSport champions would appreciate the recognition of their achievements. We hope to present these messages to the entire ballroom throughout the competition via slides projected onto the screen. Please contact me with your message and the amount you'd like to donate. You can reach me at registrar@nyusadance.org.
