The Dance-a-thon is on October 6th to October 7th 2018 It starts at 3PM on Saturday and ends at 3PM on Sunday.
For fundraising, you pick your own goal that works for you. We want everyone to choose what they feel is reasonable to be successful. Awesome prizes like concert tickets, snowboards, and ice cream will be awarded for people who hit higher goals. We will be in touch after you sign up about how to set up the fundraising.
Once you complete this form and submit it at the bottom of this page, you can begin your fundraising page by going to:
We use a crowdfunding website to raise money. You will create your own page (we will help of course) and you can send the link to it out to your friends and enemies, post it on Facebook etc. Creating the page is about as hard as creating a Facebook page. You will be able to raise money as an individual or as a team if you prefer. You can pick your fundraising goal to be whatever you think you can get. We recommend at least $300. We will be in touch shortly to talk set up!
All dancers who reach their goal will get swag. We love swag- everyone loves free stuff. T-shirts, sweatbands, caps etc.
