We were so happy to partner and send our costumes to Traveling Tutus. Knowing our costumes, dance clothing and shoes are going to children in need is amazing and seeing pictures of their smiling faces is priceless. Thank you for making a difference.

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.

I LOVE Traveling Tutus! There are not enough good things I can say about this amazing organization that sends costumes and dance attire to children around the world. I am one of their interns and the communication between Jenna and her team is wonderful- very quick responses and truly want the best for the people they’re making connections with. Additionally, I also teach for a program called Dancing for Donations. A lot of our students have special needs and spend lots of money on therapy, etc., and the program also runs off of donations. Traveling Tutus generously donated costumes for our kids to look beautiful on stage instead of having to wear a leotard and tutu for their performance, as well as donated boxes of shoes for our kids to wear in class! So thankful for the partnership Dancing for Donations has with them!

Traveling Tutus brings so much joy to my dancers and their parents when they see their costumes being passed along to kids to use again! Most of these costumes have only been worn 2-3 times and this organization has truly benefitted both those who donate and those who receive!

I have had the privilege of being an intern for this non profit and have worked a lot with the founder Jenna. To say she is one of the most amazing, loving and kind people I have ever met would be an understatement. She has put her whole heart into this non profit and it truly shows on the faces of kids everywhere when they receive the gift of dance! I am proud to be apart of Traveling Tutus and to share the love that this non profit gives to children around the world.

Such an amazing organization that inspires young dancers to serve their communities and share the gift of dance with young dancers all over the world. Collecting beautiful costumes and sending them to dancers that never would’ve gotten to wear them otherwise.

My name is Abbie Calvert, and this is my first year as a studio ambassador from LeRoux School of Dance. I’m already aware of how much Traveling Tutus does for the global community! So far, I’ve explored monetary donation collections, a costume/dancewear drive, and I have acted as a mentor for younger students at my studio. I’m honored to be involved with such an amazing organization, and I’m excited to help more! Traveling Tutus is a great cause that brings smiles to faces all around the world by giving the gift of dance!!!

This is my first year with Traveling Tutus and I love it! I've done a fundraiser night and a collection drive so far and it's so much fun. I wanted to donate dance costumes I don't wear anymore, so when I found this I was so excited! I look forward to a great year with Traveling Tutus and many more to come.

I run a program called dancing for Donations. We offer classes to all kids but are an all inclusive environment and have several special needs kids. Our program is very cheap and all proceeds go to charity. Traveling tutus sent us 2 huge boxes of shoes! How amazing. We love what they do and want to support them in every way!

My name is Cassie Disharoon, and I am a studio ambassador for Traveling Tutus, and I am absolutely blown away by this charity's impact on the world. You can really tell that they care about their mission and they truly love each and every place to which they make donations. The donated costumes that underprivileged children are receiving give them so much joy. The opportunity to aid them in reaching more children is incredible, and I'm very grateful for it. I'm so glad that I am able to volunteer with them!

I did some research trying to find donated costumes to me to use for my kids at school so I wouldn't have to ask the school or parents to fund my performances by purchasing costumes. Traveling Tutus were a Godsend!!! They sent me a lot of workable costumes and many sets, tap shoes, tights. I recently entered a contest they had where they were giving away new costumes of different sizes but all the same. I won! I send them pics of my kids in the costumes to show them what a blessing they truly are!!! I Love Traveling Tutus!!!!!

I am an ambassador for this nonprofit. I love the idea of giving to the ones that don't have a lot. A great way to do that is to give away dance clothes. When you were younger, dance clothes and costumes brought you so much joy. They do not bring you much joy anymore, so why not give it to someone who will still enjoy them? I love Traveling Tutus
