Our School can't participate during the event week (23-29 May 2022), can we dance any other time?
You absolutely can! We understand schools all dance to the beat of their own drum, so you can participate when it suits you!
Most people will be hitting the dance floor 23 - 29 May 2022 for our official challenge week, but any time after that you'll have access to our exclusive dance tutorials for all levels of experience.
Do I have to dance for the consecutive time?
Nope, you don’t have to dance consecutively. You can break up your dancing time throughout the day however you wish, whether it be 30 minutes when you wake up or 30 minutes at night, or anywhere in between.
Where do I log my dance moves?
You’ve performed those killer moves, you need somewhere to show you’ve done it!
We are encouraging participants to log their dance moves in the below ways:
- Your Dance Diary! You can find it on your fundraising dashboard. Think of your Dance Diary as your blog. You can log your time dancing, post photos, and share Facebook, Tik Tok and YouTube videos, or just write a little something about your dancing efforts.
- Post your dancing on your social media! I know it can seem daunting, but so many of your supporters want to see you dancing. By posting it on your social media using #danceforsickkids and tagging us @danceforsickkids you can be featured on our inspiration wall as well as connecting to the wider Dance for Sick Kids community!
If you're under 18, we advise you to get permission from your parent and/or guardian before you post or share anything on social media.
We recommend all parents/guardians read our Cyber Safety Tips.
How do I access the workshops?
By signing up to Dance for Sick Kids you will receive exclusive access to our Workshops. Access is via a unique link and password that will be emailed to you at the start of our challenge week, from 23-29 May 2022.
