Donate 2 Dance: A Company That’s Making
A Real Shuffle Ball Change
Meet Ava and Sophia Paley; sisters, dancers, and successful entrepreneurs! Ava, 14 years old, and Sophia, 12 years old, are the proud founders of Donate 2 Dance, an organization that donates gently used dance costumes and shoes to dancers who can’t afford these items themselves. As dancers at SHUFFLES NYC, the sisters are talented tap dancers who have performed all types of dance ranging from jazz to hip hop. With more than 10 years of dance experience comes a lot of costumes and shoes. This realization the sisters had while cleaning out their closets served as their inspiration for Donate 2 Dance.
