  • Pick a start date for your danceathon and advertise it heavily on social media.

  • Donate a portion of your proceeds to a local charity in your community. They will be happy to announce it on their website, social media page and newsletter.
  • Post the rules on your official website so that everyone understands what is allowed.
  • Invite a local celebrity or politician to blow the whistle to start the dance-a-thon event.
  • Have the dancing teams pay an entrance fee to participate. The more dancers the merrier!
  • Encourage every dance tea, to get sponsors for every hour they can stay up on the dance floor,
  • Award a prize to the winning dance couple.

How to hold a virtual dance-a-thon marathon fundraiser

Facebook “live stream” and google live hangouts are great tools to make this happen. You can either do this in two ways:

  • Dancers only while wearing masks. All spectators can watch the video online virtually.
  • Or you can do it by the honor system where every dancer does it “live” on there own facebook “live stream” or even using zoom. A trusted family member can vouch if they are to be disqualified or not.
