Since 1974, Junior Civitans around the world have danced the night away to benefit the  UAB Civitan International Research Center through Dance-a-thon! The event takes place during the Junior Civitan International Convention and is a 6-hour long dance marathon. The night includes a DJ, dress-up theme hours to help liven up the evening, snacks and a meal to help keep everyone energized and moving!



When is Dance-a-thon?

Dance-a-thon takes place during the week of the Junior Civitan International Convention. Dates for 2021 are TBD.

Who Can Come?

This event is open to all Junior Civitans who meet the fundraising minimum! Participants are strongly encouraged to attend Dance-a-thon at convention, but it is not required.


What is the fundraising minimum and how do I register for the event?

By raising a minimum of $50, any Junior Civitan can be a part of their District’s team and dance the night away. Each District has a fundraising goal and all team participants are expected to contribute to put their team ahead of the rest!
