Mission Statement

Dance Fairies is registered 501(c)(3), a non-profit 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.


After the performances and competitions, dance costumes usually end up in closets taking up space and collecting dust. This is where the Dance Fairies organization comes in! Not only are we giving those costumes a second chance to sparkle on stage again, but we are sharing our love of dance with those less fortunate and also reducing the impact on environmental resources. The production of textiles is exhaustive on resources like land, water, and energy throughout the manufacturing and transportation process and is a significant contributor to pollution in waterways. Therefore, our "reuse and reduce" efforts have a direct positive impact on young aspiring dancers and global landfills. Not only is reusing costumes cost-effective and good for the environment, but it sometimes can add extra meaning and significance to a performer when they are able to dance wearing the same costume as a dancer who generously donated it.

Over five years ago, since we embarked on our journey, we were able to collect and re-distribute thousands of gently used costumes, leotards, and all types of dance attire to aspiring dancers near and far. Helping others is what truly matters to us, and we endeavor to do more, not only for the children of our community but also for children around the world, especially those in Ukraine today. Being able to help children who come from many different backgrounds and have experienced many hardships, including emotional and physical trauma, and provide them with an opportunity to express themselves through dance is one of our goals.
