Neil Eleazar started this petition to Supadance

Not only is there not enough diversity in Ballroom & Latin itself but this problem is exacerbated by the fact that ladies Ballroom & Latin shoes do not come in a variety of colours to suit all skin tones.

When women of colour have contacted Supadance to ask which shoes they should purchase - the response is that they should buy white shoes and dye them! This represents an additional, hidden cost which women of colour need to bear to take part in dancing. But more importantly - it makes them feel unwelcome.

Other suppliers in the industry are starting to address this issue e.g. Bloch have announced that they are going to start offering more colours in their ballet pointe shoes.

We want to see Supadance starting to make similar accommodations so that everyone can participate without extra costs and everyone feels just as welcome on the dance floor.
