The Yankee Classic

The Yankee Classic began in 1990 as a one day Amateur and Pro-Amateur event, and expanded to incorporate the professional divisions in 1992.  Championship status was granted by the NDCA in 1993.  Since that time, YCDC has grown to become one of the most prestigious and highly regarded events of the USA’s calendar.  We are proud to present some of the world’s best dancers at our event, and to have been nominated as one of the three best events in the USA for the North American Dance Awards.

2006 was an exciting DanceSport event and a new beginning for the “YC”.  The Yankee Classic welcomed aboard John and Cathi Nyemchek, former United States Professional 10-Dance Champions, as it’s organizers.

Once again, this year sees us returning to the modern high-rise Boston Marriot-Cambridge Center, ideally situated in the vibrant Kendall Square with downtown Boston only moments away.  We’re happy to help you customize your visit to Boston, just give us a call at 845-268-6368.
