Dance United


Dance United is a local movement that is leveraging the power of the crowd to support our County's most effective nonprofits through focused, online giving.

CMU's 3rd annual Dance United will be held on Thursday, Nov. 6 at the CMU Events Center. This University-organized dance event sparks a friendly fundraising competition among CMU students, faculty, staff and members of the community to raise $15,000 benefiting United Way of Isabella County. Ten teams will perform 2-minute dance routines alongside performances from the CMU Dance Team and local dance studios.

The VIP hour (floor seating, heavy hors d'ouvres and entertainment) starts at 6 p.m. — $300 per table of eight. Doors open for General Admission (arena seating) at 6:45 p.m. — suggested donation of $5 or more. The Show begins at 7 p.m. Ticket information will be made available soon!
