Did you know that one of our company dancers goes through about 60-70 pairs of pointe shoes each season? Did you know each pair costs about $75? That’s about $5,000 per dancer, and roughly $75,000 spent on pointe shoes for the women in our company alone!
This is why we are launching an end of year campaign – Keep Our Dances On Their Toes – focused on raising $100,000 for the shoes our dancers need. Essential to the art form, they allow our dancers to entertain audiences with beautiful dance. We’re nearly 60% of the way to our goal, and invite you to join us!
Take a look at the video below to hear from a few of our dancers on the importance of pointe shoes.
We would like YOUR help in providing our dancers with the necessary equipment they need to perform at their best. If you donate to this campaign at our spring show, May 3-12, you will receive the following:
$35 donation – KCB Coffee Mug
$75 Donation – Signed Pointe Shoe by one of our company dancers
$125 Donation – Backstage Meet & Greet after the show
If you can’t make it to the show, we would still love your support! As an incentive, for a $75 donation made online, we will send you a voucher for a pointe shoe signed by one of our company dancers, which you can pick up here at the Bolender Center.
Your support really does make a difference. Thank you helping us Keep Our Dancers On Their Toes! Click here to donate today!
