Dancing for seven hours straight seems more like an event for strong-bodied Olympic hopefuls than for locals at a charity event. But when ’60s and ’70s funk 45s are added into the mix, the Funk Marathon suddenly seems less like a chore and more like rare opportunity to break out the platform shoes and bring back some undeniably embarrassing dance moves. This pledge-based dance marathon supporting the Ceres Community Project gets fresh on Sunday, Oct. 9, at Aubergine. 755 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 3pm-10pm. 707.861.0406.
