THE POINTE SHOE APPEAL
There are 1,000 good REASONS
for supporting the Royal Swedish Ballet
Pointe shoes are dancers’ most important tool. They wear out up to three pairs of shoes during one single performance or rehearsal. Dancing in worn out shoes increases the risk of injury and could jeopardize an entire career. The RSB consumes approximately 1,000 pairs of shoes per season at a total cost of SEK 500,000.
Our collection target is equivalent to the cost of one year’s supply of pointe shoes.
Donors who spend more than SEK 200 will get a pair of used shoes signed by a Royal Swedish Ballet dancer.
No DONATION is too small.
What will your CONTRIBUTION pay for?
- SEK 500: One pair of pointe shoes
- SEK 1,000: Two pairs of pointe shoes – one dancer’s consumption during one performance
- SEK 5,000: Ten pairs of pointe shoes – one week’s rehearsals for one dancer
- SEK 13,500: Pointe shoes for all 26 female dancers during a performance of Sleeping Beauty
