It’s BACK. 3 hours of easy-to-follow choreographed dancing to your favorite songs. Experience this MARATHON of dance parties, OUTDOORS!!!

About this Event

Last year for Grace's 40th birthday, she threw her dream party... a danceathon. Over 175 people got together in San Francisco and danced non-stop for 40 songs, which took just under 3 hours. Yes, a little crazy, but good crazy =)

Our 2nd annual danceathon was scheduled for March 28th, but it got abruptly cancelled at the start of Covid-19. We tentatively moved the date to October 24th, but didn't make plans as we accepted that it probably wouldn't happen.


Marin has moved to Tier 2 status: schools are reopening, indoor gyms are operating at 10%, health and spa services are back indoors... and outdoor recreation is allowed as long as everyone is at least 6 feet apart.

A super random facebook post by Anna Barker, followed by a text by Danusia Heilemann, and in 24 hours, Stop Drop And Dance-A-Thon 2020 has been REBORN!!!

The Magnolia Terrace at the Elks Lodge in San Rafael is over 10,000 sq ft, and they are allowed to operate at 25% capacity, which means, we are only allowed to sell 75 spots. But as a result, each person will have more than enough space to dance socially distanced from one another. Read below for more details and safety precautions.

Here's a glimpse at last year's Danceathon...


  • 2:00pm Backup Dancers Call Time (Sorry, deadline to sign up is over.)
  • 2:30pm Doors Open to Everyone

  • Alcohol or smoking is not allowed at the venue.
  • Ticket purchases are non-refundable (unless we go back to Tier 1 and have to cancel).


  • Upon check-in, everyone will need to take their temperature and fill out health assessment forms. If you know you have been exposed to anyone or are feeling unwell in any way, please respect others' safety and stay home.
