What is Dance Marathon?

Dance Marathon is a year long student-led initiative which aims to raise funds and awareness for children in need of specialized pediatric medical care that is otherwise not available to them locally.


At Florida State University, our movement culminates into a 30-hour event where over 1,800+ students stay awake and on their feet for our miracle children and our beneficiaries!

We as Dance Marathon at Florida State University, in our 29th year, promise to spread awareness of our cause across FSU and the larger Tallahassee community. We strive to inspire and engage each and every dancer, donor, and internal member that participates in our organization to create a sense of community united under the same cause. We aim to provide an environment that fosters growth for anyone involved within Dance Marathon. We will continue to honor our families, by coming together to work towards a goal bigger than ourselves and providing an opportunity for each person to grow further connected to our cause. We will dance now, for those who can’t, to create a better tomorrow. We, DM at FSU 2024 will give our all to our beneficiaries, UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital and FSU College of Medicine’s Pediatric Outreach Program.
