Support A Young Dancer In Real Life With Your Dance Shoes Donation
One Pair Of Shoes – New Or Gently Worn
The look in the eyes of the young dancer could melt your heart. It does it to me every time I watch a little girl in a tutu or in her dance outfit dancing her interpretation of the music on the dancing floor. Kids have a convincing power of imagination to live their lives when they dance. And they take us, grown soles, along the way.
One thing those kids and their parents know is how expensive the dancing outfits can cost. Many families cannot pursue their child’s dream to master dancing to one simple, yet so hard to overcome barrier – the cost of the shoes, dresses and everything that comes with a dancing dream to make it true.
That is why we need – and LOUDLY APPLAUD to – those individuals and organizations who support little dreamers and their families to become phenomenal interpreters of life on a dancing floor.
Becca Duberman and her Non-profit FOOTLOOSE are have become a golden mine for young dancers of different walks of life and in many countries of the world. FOOTLOOSE collects the dance shoes – any new and gently-worn of different types: tap, ballet, ballroom dancing shoes – and donates them to the aspiring young dancers in need.
Donations to FOOTLOOSE can be sent prior to November 16

Featuring all-star voice talent led by Elle Fanning (Maleficent), alongside Nat Wolff (The Fault in Our Stars) and Maddie Ziegler (The Book of Henry), with Mel Brooks (Spaceballs), featuring Carly Rae Jepsen (singer-songwriter of the hit song “Call Me Maybe”) and Kate McKinnon (“Saturday Night Live”), Leap! is a colorful and imaginative story about an orphan girl who is determined to follow her dream of becoming a ballerina. Filled with irresistible original music, Leap! features the hit track “Cut to the Feeling.”
Eleven-year-old orphan Félicie (Fanning) has one dream — to go to Paris and become a dancer. Her best friend, Victor (Wolff), an imaginative, exuberant boy with a passion for creating, has a dream of his own — to become a famous inventor. In a leap of faith, Victor and Félicie leave their orphanage in pursuit of their passions. But there’s a catch: Félicie must pretend to be the child of a wealthy family in order to gain admittance to the prestigious and competitive Opera Ballet School in Paris.
With no professional dance training, she quickly learns that talent alone is not enough to overcome the ruthless, conniving attitudes of her fellow classmates, led by the devious Camille Le Haut (Ziegler). Determined to succeed, Félicie finds her mentor in the tough and mysterious school custodian, Odette (Jepsen), who, along with Victor’s encouraging friendship, help her reach for the stars.
FOOTLOOSE is a non-profit charitable organization that collects new and gently used dance shoes to donate to less fortunate aspiring dancers. FOOTLOOSE donates shoes to a variety of organizations. For more information to donate or receive shoes, visit FOOTLOOSE site.
FOOTLOOSE was founded by Becca Duberman, a dancer and philanthropist, in 2010. Becca’s passion for dance and her compassion for children led to the creation of FOOTLOOSE. Like its movie namesake, FOOTLOOSE, the story of overcoming restrictions to dance, connects donors to needy recipients.
