Traveling Tutus - Bringing DANCE to children all over the world
At Traveling Tutus, they believe unneeded costumes and dance attire are a precious resource that can be repurposed to bring joy to children all around the world. By collecting, packaging, and shipping those no longer needed items, they are allowing children all over the world to experience one of life's greatest joys, DANCE!
As a dancer, dance parent, instructor or friend of the arts you know all too well how dance can be used to instill confidence, give joy and foster self-expression. Help share that gift wtih others. A recital costume that was used once and then tucked into the back corner of your closet can do so much good if given the chance. Let your costumes dance again! More importantly, let your costumes bring joy to others!
Traveling Tutus is currently accepting: Ballet costumes, Group sets of costumes for ballet, tap and jazz only. Ballet slippers and tap shoes. New tights (pink, tan and black). They accept children and adult sizes in everything.
