Community Events

Dance Marathon at FSU is a year-long celebration and effort. Throughout the year, we host multiple events to fundraise and raise awareness for children who need it most. Our fall community events include Miracle Week, which kicks-off Dancer Registration and provides many platforms to get involved with DM at FSU. Spring events include our powder paint festival, FTKolor, and Rally Week to continue the Dance Marathon celebration. Be on the lookout to new and exciting Dance Marathon events this upcoming year!

Dance Marathon

All of our events lead up to a 40-hour Dance Marathon that culminates our year of fundraising efforts. The marathon is broken up into two, 20-hour shifts, with over 800 participants in each shift. To join us in this celebration, dancers must sign up during the registration periods in the fall and spring, and fundraise at least $300 For The Kids! The marathon is full of fun, dancing, food, and miracles. We stand in honor of those who can’t. Stay tuned for our 2018 marathon’s date release!
