The Ballet Philippines' Toe Shoes Fund Drive

A project by Ballet Philippines Send a Message

Introduction

To keep our dancers on their toes, the Toe Shoe Fund provide quality shoes for our dancers. Quality shoes are handmade; all of them are imported. For a ballerina, the costs can be unmanageable. Depending on quality, toe shoes range from P3,000 to P6,000 a pair. For classes and rehearsals six days a week, a professional dancer wears out her pair so much so that we need to provide them 6 pairs a year. For performances, a new pair is a must—ratty, worn-out shoes do not look good on stage! Besides aesthetics, shoes also protect the dancers from accidents. With good toe shoes, dancers can give their best performance. Help our dancers and dance scholars reach their dreams so they may inspire others to reach for their own dreams also.

Project Description

Ballet Philippines buys Php 500,000 worth of toe shoes each year. We cannot carry this to the cost of production because we want to make our ticket prices more affordable to more people. Experiencing a BP performance at the Cultural Center of the Philippines has opened magical doors to our young audiences not only from the private schools but also from the public schools. 

The Toe Shoe Fund is a year long activity to generate money so that we can afford to buy toe shoes when the dancers need them. We also have talented scholars who come from families who cannot afford to shoulder these costs. And so we help out by reaching to generous hearts so they may dance on stage with toe shoes that could help them perfect their dance, and reap awe from the audience. Your donation not only allows us to buy the best shoes for our dancers but also helps us give the best ballet performance.
