Late Night W3 & JJO Mug DANCE-A-THON
This year we will be collaborating with Jack & Jill O'Rama to bring you a late night dancethon benefiting the John Wheaton Legacy Foundation. John was committed to helping our young dancers be successful funds will be used to fund youth dancing.
WHAT IS A DANCE-A-THON?
From midnight til the DJ calls it, you can dance as an individual or a team for a Dance-A-Thon challenge. You (and your team) commit to dancing for the entire duration of the Dance-A-Thon.
If you're on a TEAM, you don’t have to be on the dance floor the entire time.
That’s right! You get breaks. You can even alternate napping. Because you only need one dancer from each team on the floor at a time. Your team can have up to six people. Each team member (or individual) will receive a mug at the end of the Dance-A-Thon on Saturday night...a.k.a. Sunday morning.
A MUG? YOU MEAN I STILL CAN GET A MUG FOR DANCING?
We are incredibly honored to partner with Ben Morris and Tanin Kosol for our JJO Mug Design:
HOW DO YOU PARTICIPATE/REGISTER?
You can participate in the Dance-A-Thon as either an individual or as a team.
How much is it to register? $12 per person- sign up online on the W3 Registration site.
All registration dollars (minus processing fees and mug cost) will be donated to the John Wheaton Legacy Foundation. To register, simply go to the main Wild Wild Westie registration page, register for the event (if you haven’t already), and add the W3 Dance-A-Thon to your registration (see picture). If you have already registered, you should be able to add this.
By participating you will receive a mug!
How do I form a Team? -
Fundraising Challenge: Each team can consist of 6 people. To form your team, first have each member register for the Dance-A-Thon individually on danceConvention. Then go to our RallyUp site, to register your team!
After forming your team, we’ll give you the ability to create a personalised team fundraising page. Share your page with your friends and family, post it on the socials, etc., and start fundraising. Anyone who wants to donate can do so from your team page. All donations will go to The John Wheaton Legacy Foundation. As you meet certain fundraising benchmarks, your team can win fun prizes (listed below).
How do I participate as an Individual?
Individuals who sign up, all you have to do is register and participate in the Dance-A-Thon Saturday night of Wild Wild Westie. You’ll receive your mug at the end of the Dance-A-Thon (Saturday night...a.k.a. Sunday Morning). You can also raise funds as a solo team at the RallyUp site.
As a *suite* ultimate bonus, the team that raises $5k (or the team who raises the most money if multiple teams hit that amount….which, WOW, go you!), W3 will throw them a Suite Party Saturday night of Wild Wild Westie. Team members can invite a few of their friends to celebrate, and the party will be held after the Champions J&J and before the Dance-A-Thon begins.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I be a Team of 1 and be eligible for the fundraising prizes?
Yes! Register on our RallyUp site as Team Solo!
How come I can only have 6 people on my team?
Since we're offering Fundraising Prizes, we want to make sure each team is relatively evenly matched!
Do I have to dance the ENTIRE time?
You commit to trying to dance the entire time as an individual - that can include taking rest breaks, water breaks, chatting with your friends or even chilling with the DJ. But as a TEAM, please try to have one person on the floor the entire time! Cause it's a DANCE-A-THON. And #Honor.
Are you going to police the one person dancing for your team rule?
#HonorSystem #DancingForACause #IBelieveYou
When will I get my mug?
You or your team members can pick up mugs by team at the end of the night/morning as deemed by the DJ!
