What is Dance-a-thon?
It’s a dance marathon! We dance and we dance – for 12 hours straight – and we do it to help others.

Who can come?
Any Junior Civitan who raises enough money.
Start time? Arrive at 10:30a.m. for registration
Dance-a-thon begins at 11:00a.m.

*Please note a chaperone is required to attend with any individual or group attending the Dance-a-thon for the Satuday dance only. Junior Civitan policy requires at least one chaperone for every 10 Junior Civitans.

Since 1974, Dance-a-thon has been one of Junior Civitan’s top annual fundraisers. Any Junior Civitan who raises enough support gets to take part in a 12-hour dance marathon to raise money for the Civitan International Foundation and our flagship project, the UAB Civitan International Research Center! This event has raised over $1.1 million since its inception.
