Dance Marathon Virtual Event 2021

Dance Marathon Virtual Event

Dance Marathon at the University of Florida is hosting our Main Event on April 10-11. We are so excited to be able to have a portion of our members join us in the Stephen C. O’Connell Center and safely participate in two 13.1-hour shifts. We are also hosting a variety of virtual options throughout the Dance Marathon 2021 weekend for those unable to join us in person. Each tab has a schedule, as well as links for each group to follow and enjoy their virtual experience.

Check out what's going on below!
