Since 2006, Education and Community Engagement (ECE) has given away hundreds of dance costumes, shoes and other varieties of dance accessories to Houston-area schools free of charge in our community sponsored event called Graceful Givings.
With the help of a group of volunteers who donate countless hours of their time, we give away over $35,000 of dance apparel annually. These generous donations are given to schools throughout Houston and benefit over 1,500 students each year. Special thanks to the dance stores that continue to support this event each year: Georgie Girl Costumes, Jazz Rags Dancewear and Leapin' Leotards, among others.
To schedule a donation pick up, please complete an In-Kind Contribution Form. Please download, fill out and email a scanned copy to Alexandra Garza at AGarza@houstonballet.org.

If you are interested in attending this year's Graceful Givings please register below. This event is intended for schools that serve low-income student populations. Therefore, we ask that independent dance studios do not attend.
