Mark moved the competition to Boston, Massachusetts where it is currently held. Since then, it has become of one of the premier competitions in the country for Pro/Am, Amateur, and Professional competitors who attend the competition each year from across the country to compete for the prestigious title of Eastern United States Champions.

Each year, the Eastern United States Dancesport Championships crowns Eastern United States Champions in the Youth, Amateur, Collegiate, Pro/Am, & Professional categories.
