When you hear the word marathon, you likely do not immediately think of Bloch shoes and dancing. More likely your mind drifts to sweaty and limber bodies panting for 26.2 miles. But, Berkeley Dance Marathon is proving all of you wrong!
While Capezio tights are not required, a love of dance and an unwavering energy level are. On April 5th and 6th, Berkeley Dance Marathon will be holding its annual dance marathon to help raise money to stop pediatric AIDS. Dancing for a cause!
To join the community of dancing spirits looking to support the fight against HIV, all you have to do is form a team and dance for twelve hours. Your team will raise money, break a sweat, burn hundreds of calories and have a blast in the process. Whether you choose to spend your time doing the robot or showing everyone the mechanics of the sprinkler, everyone is promised a good time.
