It's that time again; time to register for the Manhattan Amateur Classic, otherwise known as the MAC. Please go to our website: www nyusadance.org and then click on the MAC link for entry forms, schedule and all sorts of other interesting information. The event will start Friday afternoon, Jan. 16 and end with the Junior MAC, Sunday evening around 7:00 PM. The MAC is a National Qualifying Event of Nationals, so it’s a great place to kill three birds with one stone -- qualifying for Nationals, having a mini vacation in NY and last but not least, dancing in a great event against some of the best dancers out there. The competition will take place over the Martin Luther King (1/16-18/09) weekend at the Grand Ballroom in the Manhattan Center. The Manhattan Center is located on 34th. St. & 8th. Ave, is right across the street from Amtrak’s Penn Central Station and close to all public transportation. We have a great room rate of $145/night at the New Yorker Hotel which is right around the corner from the venue. The venue is located across the street from Macy’s and is very convenient to all the various sights in NY. It’s a great time to come to New York, enjoy the shops and shows and also compete in one of the biggest all amateur USA Dance events in America.
