dancing participants even get
down on their way to the bathroom.
While many schools have peri
ods when dancers stop to listen to
testimonials from families or to
hear bands, Ballheim said,
Northwestern’s dancers are encour
aged to dance as much as possible.
During the 30-hour marathon,
the 500 dancers take short breaks
every few hours, but there is little
time when they are not dancing.
Each year, the marathon, in its
30th year, chooses an organization
to receive most of the money
raised. This year more than 90
percent of the money will be given
to h.a.v.e. dreams, an organization
dedicated to improving the lives of
Haley Robertson, executive
director of the University of
Georgia’s dance marathon, said
she has first-hand experience with
the mission of marathons.
Robertson was in the hospital as a
child and later volunteered there.
“I probably have a little bit of a
biased view,” she said.
Now in its tenth year, UGa.’s
2004 marathon is hoping to bring
the total money raised since the
marathon’s inception to $1 million.
Robertson said it is good to see

marathons. “It’s bigger than just
us,” she said.
Although many schools have
strict rules that do not allow
dancers to sit during the
marathon, Alison Myers, executive
director of the University of lowa’s
dance marathon, said lowa has
loosened its rules in past years.
The university’s marathon has a
surprise for first-year dancers who
expect to stand for 24 hours —a
mood room where they can take a
couple of 20-minute breaks. Aside o
from these breaks, dancers stand
even while eating during the
marathon, which was held Feb. 6
and 7 and raised more than
$625,000 this year, Myers said.
Bucy said that at UNC, the
biggest sign of growth is not the
money raised but the dancers
involved. The first year, the core
group that started the marathon
didn’t know if they would break
even, he said. “Everyone (in the core
group) had said, “There’s no way
we’re doing this again,’” Bucy said.
But Dance Marathon at UNC
continued, and Bucy has come
back every year to dance. He will be
at Fetzer Gym Friday for this year’s
Dance Marathon, he said. “The
thing that united (the first) group
was the dream of something more.”
