Dancers Take a Break at the THON Massage Parlor

Thirty-four hours into THON the dancers are still going strong. There’s still a long way left before their tired legs can get a real break, but State College’s Integrative Bodywork School of Massage Therapy is helping them stay on their feet.


Integrative’s students, graduates, and staff have been giving free massages in the BJC to dancer’s since 9 p.m. Saturday night. Owner Aaron Pavlechko says that, while the event is For The Kids, the massages are for the dancers.

“They need it,” said Pavlechko. “By the end of the night we’ll probably get to all of the dancers at least once. When one o’clock came around we saw a rush.”

The respite for the dancer’s is short lived, however, and soon it’s back to bustin’ moves.

This is Integrative’s second year donating their time to THON, but Pavlechko has been helping for twelve. “It started at a company I worked for. Now we’re doing it, it’s the right thing to do,” said Pavlechko.
