Have you graduated but still think about your time in UI Dance Marathon? Your last Big Event? The friends you made? The experience you had?

Well although your time as a student is done, your support FTK doesn’t have to. That passion, dedication, and connection remains through all of us, and the Dance Marathon Alumni Group, otherwise known as “DMAG”, is here to help!

Who We Are

We are a group of UI Dance Marathon alumni, just like you, who help organize social and fundraising events throughout the year in support of UI Dance Marathon. We keep you up to date on local events in your area as well as alumni events held at the Big Event in Iowa City in February each year. We send out quarterly email newsletters to keep you updated and also help host fundraisers around the country with DMAG members. Last year for DM22, we helped raise over $181,000 FTK!!

How to Join

If you were a dancer or leadership member at any point during your time as a student, then you automatically are able to join DMAG. We currently have over 13,000 members spread throughout the US and around the world! In order for us to get the information you need, we just ask that you keep your contact information up to date in the UI Alumni Association database (link here). Recent graduates, please input your non-uiowa email address (i.e. gmail, yahoo, etc.) so that we make sure we can reach you. We also send more frequent updates through our social media accounts.


If you have any questions or are not currently receiving our quarterly newsletters, please email DMAG President, Nic Rusher, at
