Dance Marathon FTK

Our school does a mini dance marathon to raise money for children's cancer research. Students bring in pennies on Monday, nickels on Tuesday, dimes on Wednesday, quarters on Thursday and dollars on Friday. On Friday night in our school's gym, we hold a mini dance marathon that is in connection with the University of Iowa's Dance Marathon. Moral dancers from the University come and dance with us. The 2 weeks leading up to the dance marathon we do dancing in PE. Five 6th grade students made up a dance to a popular hit song and video taped it along with the instructional dance steps to show the whole school.
