Your Dance Marathon experience doesn't have to end when your undergraduate years do - register to dance as an Alumni dancer today! Our Alumni Morale Captains are dedicated to keeping you connected to one of the best parts about St. Ambrose, Dance Marathon!

Meet your Alumni Engagement Director: Alison Yoder

Why I Dance: "I dance for a future filled with more friendships, family meals, and high school graduations. I dance to let the kiddos and their families know they are not alone and to provide them with the extra strength they need. I dance for the kiddos who are stuck at home, rather than out being a kid. I dance in honor of the kiddos forever dancing in our hearts. I dance to hear the giggles, feel the energy, and to see the miracles we can make together."

 

 

The Alumni Engagement Committee is in its second year! It involves interaction and communication with SAU Dance Marathon Alumni.

Duties include planning events, communicating with SAU professional staff especially the Alumni House and Alumni Moral Captains.

The main purpose is to help SAUDM Alumni stay involved with this wonderful organization. 

Meet your Alumni MC's: Shannon Herra & Luke Mathews

Shannon has been a part of Dance Marathon since DM4 and has participated as a dancer and served on the Family Relations & Morale Committees!
