Danceathon 2022 – 26th Feb

Whether you’re a dancing diva or a boogying beginner, sign up today to dance the night away and support The Hospice Charity Partnership!

Birmingham’s biggest dance event is back!

Join hundreds of other incredible supporters on Saturday 26th February at The Tally Ho in Edgbaston and shimmy your way through six hours of dance sessions, all in aid of helping people across Birmingham living with a life-limiting illness, and their families.

Local dance professionals will lead you through six different dance styles, including ending your evening with a freestyle dance session where you can show-off what you’ve learnt or show-off your own moves! Details of your instructors and dance sessions will be released in the build up to the event and can’t wait to let you know what exciting routines we have in store.

Danceathon is open to all abilities, so you can bust a move in each sessions or pick and cha-cha-choose which ones you want to try out. The most important thing is having fun! Due to the nature of this event, we’d recommend it for ages 12 and over. There will be plenty to keep you entertained between dances including fun fundraising activities, face-painting and stalls.
