“We were approached by some of the leaders of Pi Lambda Phi,” said Meghan Olson, representative from Swing Club. “[The Dance-A-Thon] is something that they do on other campuses in the U.S. and it’s gotten to be really successful.”
The event took place in the Great Hall of the Memorial Student Center, where the floor was cleared for swing dancing, Zumba and freestyle. Dancers of all kinds hit the floor, shaking, jumping and spinning for a cause.
Two screens lit up the back of the room, presenting quotes, information about the foundations, and a schedule for the night.
