Mac, to his students and friends, was born in Alabama, the son of an army pilot. He moved to Naples in 1998 and began dancing socially in 2001 and began teaching ballroom dancing in 2011. He is skilled and an excellent teacher with all styles of dance with stand-out talent and interest in the rhythmic styles of ballroom dance.
Since beginning his professional career, he has become Southwest Florida’s top competitor in Theatre Arts, taking top honors at the Sunburst Ball in Scottsdale, Arizona in 2012, Spring Swing in Tampa, FL in 2014, and at Swing into Summer in Naples in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.
“One of my greatest joys from teaching ballroom dancing is seeing the progress of students. My biggest compliment is when I see an individual or couple ‘light up’ because they’re happy with themselves. I am making a difference for people, and it makes me feel good.”
