Mitch Mologne, a first-year physiological sciences student takes a stretch break to energize himself while dancing.
At UCLA's annual Dance Marathon, participants have to find creative ways to avoid sitting down while participating in the 26-hour event.
Ariel Stallings, a first-year psychology student, and Jake Arnold, a first-year economics student, lean over a table during the middle of the night to rest their feet.
The only requirement is that students remain on their feet during the entire event, prompting creative workarounds for students to stay up.
Abigail Vidrio, a third-year biology student, leans over a table to study while taking a break from the dancing.
With less than five hours left in the event, some participants even found ways to fall asleep while on their feet.
At the end of the event, the dancers all fell to the floor, sitting for the first time in 26 hours.
Some dancers immediately used their first opportunity to squeeze in a quick nap.
