Pointe Shoe Patrons

Give the gift of dance to Rochester

Pointe shoes are an essential tool for the art produced by Rochester City Ballet. Custom made by hand, pointe shoes can cost, on average, $80-150 per pair. Crafted from natural materials to best support the dancers’ feet, some pairs only last a single performance; others at most, one week of rehearsals. RCB provides pointe shoes for all dancers, and can spend over $15,000 in pointe shoes each year. That’s why the Company needs your help to keep our dancers supplied with the best tools of the trade!
