DanceBlue is a year-long fundraiser that culminates in a 24-hour no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon. It is entirely run by University of Kentucky students! We encourage every student at the University of Kentucky to participate in our dance marathon, as well as other general DanceBlue events and fundraisers.
Our favorite way for students to get involved is to become a dancer, but students can also fundraise or volunteer!
When you decide to become a dancer, you embark on a journey that will change your life forever. Our dancers fundraise all year long to compete for a spot at the marathon! Our marathon includes testimonies and stories from our families in the clinic, delicious food from local vendors, check presentation, and an hourly line dance! Like our Facebook page (@danceblue) to view this past year’s marathon photos for a better look into the best 24 hours of the year!

Some of the most popular fundraisers include restaurant nights at local restaurants, merchandise sales designed by each team, and bake sales held on campus! Though popular, these are not the only ways to fundraise. We encourage teams to be creative in their fundraising methods. To view a longer list of ideas, click here.
If your team is putting on a fundraiser, make sure you are following all of the rules on the Fundraiser Policy Sheet. Then, submit your fundraiser for approval by filling out the Fundraiser Submission Form. Once your fundraiser is approved, and if it is an event, make sure to print off the DB Spirit Points Sheet! Have the Spirit Point sheets sitting out at the event so other dancers can come and sign in! Remember, if your event is held on campus, you must fill out a “Sell/Solicit Form” found by clicking here.
Volunteer at DanceBlue 2018!
Volunteer Registration will be opened closer to the marathon date.
