Please Support SBC's Annual Pointe Shoe Fund

Why a Pointe Shoe Fund?

Made by hand with materials such as satin, glue, and leather, pointe shoes are constructed with extreme precision. One pair of pointe shoes can cost between $75 and $100. They are designed to break down and mold to the foot of a dancer allowing for those breathtaking moments we see on stage during Springfield Ballet Company performances.

But they don't last long. Some pairs only last a single performance; others at most, just a few weeks of rehearsals. That's why SBC is dedicated to giving our dancers the tools they need to gracefully stay on their toes.

Thank you for considering a gift to such a necessary and much needed fund.

For additional information, please contact Sally Hamilton at 217-544-1967 or via e-mail at hamilton@springfieldballetco.org
