DANCE FAIRIES

As many in the dance world know, after performances and competitions, costumes usually end up in closets collecting dust. This is where Dance Fairies comes in! Not only are we giving those costumes a second chance to sparkle on the stage once again, but also we are sharing our love for dance with aspiring dancers in need.

Dance Fairies’ mission in 2021 is to collect and re-distribute 4000 costumes. To reach our goal we need YOU! Do you have costumes or any other dance wear, including gently used or new leotards, shoes and tights, that are taking up space in your closets or your dance studio? Please call, text or email us to arrange for easy shipping or pickup. Your involvement will allow us to help even more dancers and bring a smile to their face!

We are also looking for passionate and self-motivated young individuals to join our team and represent Dance Fairies as an Ambassador! Someone who aspires to be their best self, while inspiring others along the way. Does that sound like you? If so, we would LOVE to hear from you!

The Dance Fairies Ambassadors will advocate for our organization by sharing on social media, fundraising and hosting dance attire collection drives.

As an ambassador, not only will you develop skills of leadership, communication and organization, but you will earn community service hours while sharing the love of dance with thousands of less privileged children in your community and around the world.

This program is done remotely so ambassadors can participate from anywhere. The accepted ambassadors will receive support from our team via email, text alerts, and through our private Dance Fairies Ambassadors FB group page. In fact, we would love to have an Ambassador representing our organization in every state. This will allow us to reach as many deserving dancers as possible.

Mission Statement

Dance Fairies is a nonprofit organization that collects gently used and new dance wear, including costumes and shoes of all kinds, and donates them to aspiring dancers in need around the world in hope of providing them with the access to proper dance attire to follow their dreams and dance passion.

Description

The passion and love for dance has inspired a young teenager, Michelle Koehler, with an idea to create and lead a nonprofit organization, which she have named Dance Fairies. Growing up, she thought that having proper dance attire and beautiful costumes was ordinary, but later Michelle realized how lucky she is to even have the ability to take dance lessons, and that not everyone has this opportunity. Over the years, after multiple recitals and competitions, she has collected an excessive amount of costumes in her closet. Every one of those costumes had sentimental value and stories behind them. However, knowing that all of those gently used dance costumes that have been hanging in her closet for years and collecting dust, could bring so much joy and happiness to other little girls, just as they did to her in the past, gave her an idea. She wanted to share the love and passion of dance, and bring that magic moment in the life of children who may otherwise never have a costume of their own.

In the last 3 years, Dance Fairies organization was able to donate thousands of dance costumes and other dance wear to aspiring dancers locally and around the world.

This year Michelle extended the work of the organization even further by introducing and offering Dance Fairies' Ambassadors program to teenagers near and far, and currently have a team of 23 ambassadors located in Texas, other states of United States and even in the UK.
