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.

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.

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
