2017 will be the second year that MA Dance combines a USASF Dance Worlds qualifiying competition to Nationals. MA Dance is one of the few dance team companies operating from Texas that extends its reach far out in the nation through an extensive private camp, summer camp, and competition schedule. When it comes to our National Competition, we are one of the only companies that uses an Olympic style judging panel and awards routine placements rather than division 1 ratings.  Arenas, huge exhibit hall performance floors and hotel ballrooms for soloists make this competition unique. When you begin to consider your choice for a national competition, we hope you will value that our competition is truly a National and International competition, with two full days of competition in the friendly downtown area of Fort Worth, TX.

MA Nationals is the true win!

We have already received overwhelming applause from dance directors. Eve Robinson from Alvin HS responded to the news with great enthusiasm: "This is by far the most amazing change that any company has offered! Thank you so much for adding this valuable tool to your judging panel. I feel strongly that this will allow each team to grow with genre specific scoresheets and corrections. We look forward to attending more MA contests and taking advantage of this incredible advancement!"
We totally agree with her!
