Participating as a dancer is one of the most rewarding experiences that one can have at Florida State University. Over 1,800 students stand 20-hours in honor of those who can’t. Throughout their 20-hour shift, dancers are encouraged to learn the linedance, enjoy live entertainment, eat delicious sponsored food, and meet the miracle families who are directly impacted by their efforts. Dancer registration occurs for two weeks during the Fall and two weeks during the Spring. Dancers have the opportunity to dance with a team or as an individual!

Dancer Registration is closed for DM 2017, but be sure to join us next year!

Our annual Dance Marathon would not be possible without the generous time dedicated by student volunteers. These volunteers sign up for 1-2 shifts during the marathon, and help to staff in anyway needed. Volunteers have the unique opportunity to receive a sneak peek into how our organization functions internally. Volunteers can be tasked with facilitating dancer meals, fundraising activities, participant safety, and more! Additionally, volunteers can input their donated time as a ServScript submission. Each year, we look for 300-350 volunteers to help support the event and the kids.
