Keep Our Dancers On Their Toes

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.

$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.IMG_8495
