Pointe Shoes are a Ballerina’s Instrument.

Imagine playing in an orchestra and regularly replacing your handmade violin out of necessity. Pointe shoes are constructed by hand with extreme precision using materials such as satin, glue, and leather.  However, these high-performance instruments are designed to break down and mold to a ballerina’s foot allowing for those breathtaking moments we see on stage during Springfield Ballet Company performances. As a result, some pairs of shoes only last a single performance; others at most, just a few weeks of rehearsals.

SBC is dedicated to giving our dancers the tools they need to gracefully stay on their toes, but one pair of pointe shoes can cost between $75 and $100. We need your help and generosity to provide our dancers with the instruments they need to make beautiful music for you.
