When: Friday, Mar 6, 2020 until Saturday, Mar 7, 2020

SHMD is held every March in South Glens Falls, New York. Students at South Glens Falls High School, grades 9-12, gather to raise money and dance for an amazing 28 hours straight, all in the name of local people and charities who need help.

The 2020 Marathon Dance will be held March 6 and 7 at the South Glens Falls Senior High School.

Opening ceremonies will begin at 7:00 p.m. Friday evening.

This event is open to the public, from 5:00 p.m. through 10:30 p.m. on Friday, March 6, and any time after 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 7. Since the Dance has grown immensely, only registered dancers, and others as indicated in the official schedule, are permitted on the dance floor. Additionally, seating is limited in the main gym where the dance takes place; spectators may be directed to alternate viewing areas.

This year marks the 43rd anniversary of SHMD!
