EPIC Quarterly Dances
EPIC sponsors quarterly themed dances for people with disabilities living in North Alabama. Dancing is a great way to exercise, socialize and just have fun but it’s not for everyone. So for those who want to get out and just enjoy the company, we have craft tables and a games area that’s available for their use. EPIC dances are so popular that we’ve had a waiting list to attend. This event is free and it’s very important to continue them as the population we serve really looks forward to them.
How You Can Help
Local volunteers help with set-up, clean up, decorating, serving refreshments and of course interacting with our participants, be it on the dance floor, the craft tables or gaming area. These dances would not be successful without their help. If you are interested in volunteering for future events please email our Volunteer Coordinator, Donna Kuhn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The cost to decorate and serve snacks to 200 + people can be costly. Please consider making a monetary donation. We will also accept donations of bottled water, Gatorade, individual snack bags of chips or cookies.
Become a sponsor
$400.00 pays for the decorations, activities and snacks for one dance.

Going to the movies can be a daunting experience for some people with disabilities and their families. That’s why the EPIC Movie Club was started. Depending on our sponsorship, we try to offer movies once a month at little or no cost to participants, their families and caregivers. Movie viewing is done with a “no judgement” attitude for those who might not be able to sit still or quietly during the viewing.
This opportunity will give families a chance to get away and enjoy themselves at the theater. It also allows for first time movie goers “to give it a go” without worrying about people complaining or commenting.
Become a sponsor
$250 allows EPIC to purchase the whole theater.
$500 allows EPIC to purchase the whole theater w/ snack box for participants.
