Halfway There brings together the entire Dance Marathon body, nearly 3,000 strong. Moving briskly into the main lounge before the ceremony begins, dancers take their positions as they wait for the clock to strike 7 a.m.

Even Herky joins the dancers in celebration as the first half of the marathon comes to a close, bringing each participant closer to the finish line.

Halfway There provides an opportunity for dancers to reflect on what has been accomplished and what lies ahead.
