DM28 Big Event Update

Dear University of Iowa Dance Marathon community, 


We are writing today to share an important update about the Big Event for Dance Marathon 28. As you know, this was initially planned to be an in-person event. After careful consideration and consultation with health care experts, the decision was made to move the event to a virtual format. Dance Marathon serves some of the most vulnerable members of our community, and every precaution should be taken to protect their health.  


While this is a shift from our original plan, we are encouraged by the success of the virtual format of the Big Event in 2021 – a year in which we raised over $1.4M. The event will again be live-streamed on the Dance Marathon website to provide the community an opportunity to gather together in celebration. 


Additional details will be shared as soon as they are available. In the meantime, we appreciate your continued support! If you should have any questions, please contact us at 


Creating Tomorrow by Dancing Today,


Dance Marathon 28 Executive Council
