These students are the heart and soul of DM. The dancers are taught a series of dance steps throughout the night which at the end of the night will be combined together to create a long line dance that all dancers participate in. In between the different dance “lessons” dancers are free to interact with other dancers, play games, participate in themed contests, and spend time getting to know the families they are supporting.
Dancers are expected and encouraged to:
- Stay on their feet for the full 18-hour event
- Pay a $20 registration fee
- Required to raise at least $50 in donations
Students appointed by their organization to motivate the organization's dancers. Moralers can achieve this task by bringing snacks, dancing with the dancers, etc. This position isn't required to stay the whole time but at least 1 moraler should be in attendance for each organization the entire night.
- Required to pay $20 registration fee
- Raise at least $50 in donations
- Help dancers based on the needs and suggestions of their organization
DM has many chairmen who need help executing their responsibilities in the planning of Dance Marathon. If you would like to participate in DM and fill a larger role before DM or do something other than participate as a Dancer or Moraler at DM, DM Exec can place you on a committee. Committees include and are not limited to the Moral committee, Security, and Catering committee. Please contact Overall Director, Alex Friend at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and descriptions of the various committees of DM.
