Donate To Dance

Donate2Dance was created in February 2018 by a ShufflesNYC alumni and current student, Ava and Sophia Paley, with the mission of collecting gently worn dance shoes, costumes and dancewear to donate to dance schools in need across the country. So far, they have partnered with over 250 dance programs that serve inner city children and those with special needs. To date, they have donated to over 60,000 dancers around the world. 

Since it's inception, Donate2Dance has been featured on the Today Show, People Magazine, Katie Couric Media, ABC, Seventeen Magazine and more! Check out all of the amazing work they do by visiting their website HERE!

If you’d like to donate dance shoes, costumes, and/or dancewear, check out the pink Donate2Dance box in our lobby at Studio Maestro (48 W 68th St).
