A FUNDRAISING EVENT IN SUPPORT OF The children’s bursary fund

Sunday, SEPTEMBER 29, 2019
CLASSES: 9:30 am-6:00 PM (Join In Anytime)

Come move move move move with us for 8 hours of fun and dance at our 26th annual Dance Class Marathon. This event is for anyone and everyone over the age of 13 who love to dance and move – yes…beginner to advanced dancers are welcome. There are 23 different classes to choose from. And 8 full hours to get your groove on (but you can do as much or as little as you feel comfortable with). 

Like with any fundraising event, raising funds is part of the fun. The more people you get to pledge money to your day of dancing and DJD, the better your chances to win some great prizes. And who doesn’t love prizes?! The funds that you raise will go towards our Children’s Bursary Fund. Each year DJD awards over 75 youth with dance scholarships, with your support we hope to engage even more hopeful dancers!

Raise Funds

The Dance Class Marathon is a vital fundraising event in support of DJD, which enriches lives through the art of jazz dance and music. DJD is the only full-time professional jazz dance company in Canada and the fifth largest Canadian dance company by budget size. As a registered charity, DJD relies on community support to create magical, affordable evenings of dance and offer numerous Arts in Education programs reaching thousands of Alberta students each year. This year the funds raised from the Dance Class Marathon will be directed to our Children’s Bursary Fund.
