Let's Move! Dance-A-Thon

Do you LOVE to dance? Then come party with us at the Let’s MOVE! Dance-A-Thon and Daytime party. There will be special guest DJs and fabulous prizes for the winner who can dance the longest. 100% of ticket sales go to The DC Center Relocation Fund.

The DC Center is moving into a new space at The Reeves Center this summer BUT there’s lots of work that needs to be done before we relocate. The space needs to be completely renovated and the cost is estimated at upwards of $75,000 so we NEED to raise money.

The event takes place on Saturday, April 20th, 12pm – 8pm at Cobalt DC (1639 R St NW). Pre-registration for contestants is $25 and includes a chance to win fabulous prizes if you’re the last one left on the dance floor. If you just want to come to dance, mingle or just support The DC Center it will be $10 in advance. Registration and non-contestant fee will increase at the door.

Are you up for the challenge? If so, register below and let’s get MOVING!
