Dancewear Distribution

BOSTON DANCE ALLIANCE DISTRIBUTED

FREE, BRAND NEW DANCEWEAR

TO LOW-INCOME DANCERS ACROSS OUR COMMUNITY!

 

We are delighted to have been able to support the young dancers of

OrigiNation Cultural Arts Center

Boston City Lights Performing Arts

Mladost Folk Ensemble

Tony Williams Dance Center

Roxbury Center for the Performing Arts

Casco Bay Movers, through BDA member Sara Juli

plus a special donation of merchandise for the burlesque community through Cassandre Charles

With boxes stacked to the ceiling of BDA’s office at Boston Ballet, it took a team of volunteers including Cassandre Charles, Sara Goodman, and David Fillingham many hours to get the shoes ready for distribution to low-income dancers!

We still have merchandise to share!

Because of this year’s unprecedentedly large donation — $23,000 worth of brand new leotards, tights and other merchandise and over $25,000 worth of dance shoes for kids, youth and adults — and since not all schools and studios are back up to full enrollment, we have a number of boxes still available for low-income dancers.

  • We have slippers, tap and jazz shoes for the littlest dancers and children and both Capezio and Bloch pointe shoes for youth.
  • We also have some footed and footless tights and adult bodywrappers in a range of colors and styles

 If you are BDA member you can ask for your preferences by writing to dancewear@bostondancealliance.org. Not a member yet? It’s easy to join here.   But when they’re gone, they’re gone, so act today!

Support BDA’s work for equity and inclusion by making a donation!

SORRY, BDA DOES NOT ACCEPT DONATIONS OF USED DANCEWEAR AND SHOES!

The 2021 BDA Dancewear Distribution was made possible in part by First Republic Bank.

We thank them for their generosity.
