Board of Managers
“IU Dance Marathon is home. I am most happy, most fulfilled, and having the most fun when I am serving IU Dance Marathon and the kids at Riley Hospital. As my dance marathon journey begins to wind down, I will strive to practice servant leadership and work tirelessly to leave this organization and the kids at Riley in a better place than I found them. I look forward to cherishing every day that I have the opportunity to do so. Simply put, IU Dance Marathon has changed me forever, and for that, I am so thankful.”

“I dance to give everything I can back to an organization that has given me more than I could ever ask for. More laughter, more tears, more memories, more family & more perspective. Someone once told me, if you live to be 100 years old, college will only make up 4% of your life. Because of IUDM, I am confident that I am spending my 4% with the greatest people, serving the greatest mission there is.”

“‘If you want to change your life do dance marathon. If you want to change someone else’s life do dance marathon.’ I did my first dance marathon as a freshman in high school because as a Riley kid I wanted to give back and make sick kids lives better. I was hooked immediately and knew dance marathon was something I wanted to do for as long as I could. What I didn’t realize was how much dance marathon would change my life. It has given me a purpose, fulfillment, energy, and spirit that you can’t find anywhere else. I wouldn’t trade my past 8 years of involvement with dance marathon for the world.”
– Henry Curts, VP Internal
