USD students to dance for charity attempt new world record
As part of Dance Marathon, an annual 24-hour event that raises money for Children’s Miracle Network, more than one hundred students from The U will meet at 1:15 p.m. at Vermillion High School, located at 1001 E. Main St., to learn and practice dance moves for Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” Once the moves are perfected, the dance will be recorded to verify that a new record was set. The current record for “Thriller” is 78 dancers, which was set a year ago at Northwestern University’s Dance Marathon. Taping at Vermillion High School is scheduled to occur between 3:15 and 5 p.m. at the high school.
Last year, USD’s Dance Marathon raised more than $38,000 for Children’s Miracle Network. Since its first year at USD in 1997, Dance Marathon has raised more than $230,000 for Children’s Miracle Network.
