POINTE SHOE Appeal
Female dancers can go through up to three pairs of pointe shoes in just on performance of a full-length ballet and with the most expensive pair of pointe shoes costing around £70 it is easy to see how the costs mount up. As a result, English National Ballet spends over £145,000 on pointe shoes every year.
Please help us keep our dancers moving and performing to audiences around the UK and beyond by generously donating towards our Pointe Shoe Appeal. Whatever the size of your gift it will be put to work straight away.
