A female dancer’s performance is dependent on the right pair of pointe shoes. The shoes allow the dancer to stand on the tips of their toes (en pointe) for a prolonged period of time. It is essential that the dancers have quality equipment. The beauty of the ballet dancer comes at a price to Columbia Classical Ballet.

Each year Columbia Classical Ballet provides pointe shoes for the company female dancers. The purchase price of each pair of shoes is $100. Approximately 12 pairs of pointe shoes are purchased for each dancer. Columbia Classical Ballet spends more than $14,000 per year for pointe shoes. As you can see, keeping the dancers in the proper equipment is a remarkable financial undertaking.
