Dancing For A Difference

A local charity called Donate 2 Dance was born when a mom in Manhattan told her two daughters to clean out their closets.

Through their bold and risk-taking work, these two dance makers embody many of the qualities that are so important to Dance Place. Art on 8th is supported byMonroe Street Market and Long & Foster Brookland Sales. American Music Abroad is a Department of State program funded and sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Dancing is an enjoyable way to be more physically active and stay fit.

The teachers have been so kind and patient with her, even on days when she isn’t feeling the most cooperative. This Best Friend Friday, dancing sisters Ava and Sophia Paley, ages 14 and 12, open up about starting Donate 2 Dance, an organization that collects attire for young dancers in need. Plus, Tiler Peck, a New York City Ballet dancer, stops by with a surprise. Ballet Slippers, jazz, and tap shoes that are NEW or in a very gently used condition that were worn just once or twice, cleaned, and sanitized. Making a donation of your gently used costumes and dancewear is easier than you might think. We ask you to consider supporting Dance Place in our work providing these much needed opportunities for artists by making a donation to the Alan M. Kriegsman Creative Residency Fund.

We wrapped up our fundraiser with a final drop off event the weekend of March 26-27th at Rockridge BART Station in Oakland (Miles & Forest Ave). Donors brought all of their donations and we had volunteers on site to help. We received a $1,000 matching grant from Lee Chiropractic in Oakland, CA. Because of their donation we were able to reach out $8,000 goal. Give them your telephone number and your physical address so they know where to collect the donation from. Add a Dance for the Cure Challenge to your competition or dance event. Our students learn to develop their personalities and improve their social growth, while focusing on technique and showmanship.

  • Not only does it allow you to express emotions, but also it offers an opportunity to develop self-confidence and make a difference in the lives of others.
  • You will be required to include a copy of it inside of the box with your donation and keep a copy for yourself.
  • Unfortunately, the shipping cost of the redistribution to the organizations we work with is one of our biggest obstacles.
  • Following high school, Sara went to further her dance education at the University of South Florida, where she learned all dance styles but focused on ballet & modern.
  • With that in mind, in June of 2018 the idea of Dance Fairies was born.

Unfortunately, the shipping cost of the redistribution to the organizations we work with is one of our biggest obstacles. For this reason, we kindly ask our donors to make a small monetary donation with their costumes donation. It costs us around $3 per pound to redistribute your donations. If you would be as kind and generous as to help us with that cost, please continue to Step #2. That collects previously loved dancewear and dance shoes & delivers these to dancers in need from dance organisations within historically disadvantaged communities. Dance Fairies was inspired by passion and love for dance and recognition that not all children have access to beautiful dance costumes and proper dance shoes to allow them to follow their dreams.
