Traveling tutus is such a great organization that gives everyone the opportunity to enjoy the love of dance that sometimes we take for granted. They give great ideas on how to share what you don’t need and change peoples lives in the process. Seeing the smile on peoples faces that receive costumes is priceless. It is such a great organization to be a part of!

I have been an ambassador for Traveling Tutus for about three years now and it has been absolutely amazing!! The nonprofit organization gives me the opportunity to donate so many old costumes and dance clothes and put them to a better use. Not only this, but it also opened my eyes to those who may not be as fortunate as myself. Because of this I have learned the meaning of kindness and giving back. Traveling Tutus has been such an impactful part of my life and I am so thankful that I have gotten the oppurtunity to work with the nonprofit. Traveling Tutus is the best!!!

Working as an ambassador for Traveling TuTus has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life as a dancer.

My name is Kyle Tanguay and I am currently a Junior Dance Major at The University of The Arts in Philadelphia, PA! When I'm not in classes at UArts, you can find me working with companies such as The Vanessa Long Dance Company, as well as Boston Community Dance Project.

Growing up in Rochester, NH I started my training at a local studio by the name of Fusion Dance Academy. Coming from a working class family, with two parents working 40+ hours a week, and a younger sister, it was very hard for my family to afford dance training. It was through the kindness of another's heart that I was given a scholarship so that I may pursue this craft that I love so dearly and to this day now teach at Fusion which has quickly become my second home. Since those fundamental years I have gone on to work with artists such as Kaneeza Schaal, Sidra Bell, Jessie Zaritt, and many many more incredible artists from all over the world.

It was through the kindness of another that I was given my chance to dance, and grow every single day I walked into the studio and for that I am eternally grateful. With all of this being stated, I have made it my mission to give any person the chance to dance. Working with charities such as The Dizzy Feet Foundation, Neighborhood Engagement at UArts (NEUARTS), and now Traveling Tutus, I believe together we can do what we can to give every child the chance to dance.

This organization holds at its heart all the virtues, and Morales, that are necessary to create a world where dance is appreciated and accessible to all. After over a decade in the field of dance, I am so happy to have a found a group of strong independent people, eager for change. Five stars, hands down!

This nonprofit organization is amazing! I love their mission which is "bringing the gift of dance to children around the world". I like it so much because being a dancer myself, I can see how much it helps you grow as a person, get good physical exercise and it makes you happy. I don't know about you, but most of my old dance costumes that I have only worn once or twice are stuffed in the back of my closet. This organization will take those costumes and give it to kids around the world who can really use them. Best of all, it makes them super happy!

I got involved with Traveling Tutus about 2 years ago, after I heard about it from a friend. Since then, I've hosted bake sales, taught classes, raised money and collected a ton of costumes for this amazing organization. The monthly fundraisers are very fun and easy to complete, and make me feel like i have a real connection with the Traveling Tutus mission. Anyone who's interested in dance and loves to help dancers who are less fortunate, this is the perfect organization for you!

I teach ballet in Bluefields, Nicaragua which is on the Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua. I hesitated contacting Traveling Tutus when members of my church in Springfield, IL sent me information. They knew that we have few resources available for the Bluefields Ballet Group. When I finally got the courage to contact them did not hesitate to tell me "absolutely we can help." That request was in March and in August they shipped to our agent in Miami who put the tutus and much more on the container to Bluefields. I cannot express the wonder when the dancers (6-16) entered the room to see the tutu explosion. I thank Traveling Tutus every day for all the ways they help bring beautiful ballet clothes to dancers around the world. Thank you Traveling Tutus for your generosity and your donor's generosity in bringing the magic to so many. In Bluefields, our hearts are overflowing with blessings and gratitude to Traveling Tutus.
