Why are we raising funds?

Help save a child's life!
Donations from last year's Danceathon directly impacted 190,000 children. Our donations will help CHKD provide services to Sophie and other children suffering with cancer and life altering diseases. More Info

Funding community oriented dance programs – In the past years the Dance-a-thon funded free hip hop classes for children helped by ForKids Inc. and free kids Zumba classes to fight childhood obesity. New programs such as Parents Night Out are in progress. The event also helped make it possible to bring world renowned instructors to Hampton Roads for special workshops and performances. More Info

Increasing culture diversity through dance in Hampton Roads. The Mambo Room aims to provide diverse dance programs via hosting guest instructors, dancers, and performers who travel
from all over the region and the nation to provide quality
instruction and dance education.
