Fund a pair of pointe shoes
Jingle bells…pointe shoes smell! Since most pointe shoes are made of natural materials, they break down quickly and for a professional dancer have a short lifespan. Pointe shoes extend our dancers’ beautiful lines by allowing them to dance on their toes. This gives a sense of lightness and the ethereal illusion of floating on air. Our company spends thousands of dollars each year on them.
Pointe shoes now average over $100 a pair and depending on the brand that works for a dancer’s foot structure can go as high as $150. They will last only a week or two. Please consider donating $100 toward our pointe shoe budget!
