  2. Hello,
    The new E-mail for the SJSU Ballroom Spartans (Now just called SJSU Dancesport Team) is

    Please Update. Also, we are still taking donations of any sort and can have paperwork filed to get a Tax ID for the items.
  3. Thank you? What idea are we talking about again?
  4. Just want to give big thanks to Miss Silly and Katarzyna for the generous donations to the SJSU Dancesport team! If you filled out the tax form provided and sent them with the donations then we will get those processed ASAP. Thank you again!

    The University of Arkansas (Fayetteville) Ballroom Club is in need of, well, everything -- but practice-wear and shoes the most, especially men's.

    Its probably easiest to send things through me as (co-)faculty advisor for the team, so please PM me re: shipping address or for any related questions... and thanks in advance for whatever help anyone can provide! :)

    I have some ladies shoes (well used) and possibly some other items to donate. If there are any clubs able to accept donations over the summer, please send me a PM. Thanks.

    This thread hasn't been updated in a while, but I am on the current board of the University of Pennsylvania ballroom team and wanted to reach out to the community to see if anyone has any items they are willing to donate. We would sincerely appreciate any shoes, costumes, or practice clothing. Please PM or contact us at askplbd [at] gmail [dot] com. Thank you!

    Hello, I have several ladies shoes sizes 7/7.5 UK (9/9.5 US) to donate, and practice dress for a tall girl. Some shoes are only worn to 1/2 competitions. Are any collegiate teams currently accepting donations? I would prefer New York/Connecticut are due to shipment costs.

  11. Hi Lorelei! I wanted to check in with you to see if your shoes and practice dress are still available? I just started dancing with the MIT team, and we are in serious dearth of costumes and practice wear for tall girls. I'm sure we could also use some shoes too; we always have newcomers, and I know a girl in particular who could use those shoes now. Please let me know, thanks!!!

    I have a few smooth and rhythm/latin costumes that I could donate - but they are not brand-name. Two have Korean stones on them. Would these be useful?

    Ok! I'll read through the thread about how to donate and where to.

    Yes! Things with stones (any stones) would be awesome. It's not uncommon for collegiate dancers to have off brand dresses, with or without sparkles. And with the change in rules allowing for stones, we have people that would enjoy sparkle but have no sparkle to hand down to members, just some of our older sparkle free costumes.

    I have several practice dresses, skirts and tops in great condition that I'm looking to donate- please send me a PM if you need this stuff- it will take me a couple of weeks to get organized, but I'm willing to pay shipping costs too

    I've got a pair of Aida latin sandals, Karinas, size 22, that look good enough to compete in, but the interior sole shows they've been danced in. Heel height is 2 1/2. Hate to pitch them, esp. since the satin on the heel cup is spotless (I wear protectors to avoid "the burn") so... let me know if you're interested enough to pay shipping, and they're yours.
