USA Dance Chapter 2037

Serving the Central Michigan area (Lansing, East Lansing, Owosso, Flint, Jackson and surrounding areas)


Our top priority is to expand the dance education of beginner Ballroom, Latin and Swing dancers and further promote the positive effects of dancing to youth, singles, couples, social, and competitive dancers of all experience levels. We are an organization that is open to all who wish to participate at any level. We encourage participation in social activities, group lessons, and the promotion of USADANCE to your family, friends, and region.

MAC Dance Academy Instructor Mary Benjamin, along with her partner, Jerry, have won and placed at many dance competitions in American Smooth, International Standard and Rhythm dances.  They continue their education on a weekly basis traveling to Ypsilanti to obtain lessons from their coach, Claire Hansen, No. 1 Canadian Pro Standard Dancer.

Ballroom dance is the interaction, communication, and movement of two people connected through common mediums - dance steps and music. We ballroom dance because this is one of the few ways that a couple can combine the athleticism and competitiveness of sports with the artistry of music and movement.

Ballroom dancing allow the student to develop physical, mental, artistic and communication skills.  This makes ballroom dancing exciting and challenging.
