“I believe the most effective philanthropy occurs when a person acts on his or her passion to address pre-existing needs in the community. When I lead a class, I share a part of myself with each dancer.”
Wear then Share provides low-income and at-risk youth with dance lessons and performance training, helping them develop the motivation and persistence that come along with the discipline. Based in Atlanta, Wear then Share includes both a dancewear initiative through which it collects and distributes new and gently used dance clothing, and a dance outreach program through a local homeless shelter and the Boys and Girls Club. Since 2006, Wear then Share has distributed dancewear items valued at $80,000 and taught hundreds of students dance and performance skills.
