Participants pledge to stay on their feet and dance all night, from 8 p.m. until 4 a.m., and can look forward to a night filled with DJs, games, blacklights, musical performances, giveaways, raffles, food and more.

Last year, 147 dancers participated and collectively raised more than $11,000 for the Children's Center. The executive board for Dance Marathon has set a fundraising goal of $17,000 for this year's event, which begins at 8 p.m. in the Glass Pavilion on the Homewood campus.
