Dance Marathon Captains are dedicated, hardworking, and motivated student leaders. Captains are chosen because of their experience and desire to make Rutgers University Dance Marathon great, and play a key role in the execution of DM. Captains start their careers with Dance Marathon through a six-week education process starting in October and work throughout the year until the close of the Marathon.

Who are Captains?

  • Captains vary in graduation year, from first-years through seniors.
  • Captains have varied majors, interests and skill sets.
