|Keep us on our toes!|
|“Pointe shoes are singularly the most significant tool that dancers rely on to perform at our best. They are deceivingly fragile and no two pairs are exactly the same. Miami City Ballet’s Toe Shoe Fund initiative raises critical funds to ensure that our dancers are equipped with a shoe supply abundant enough to match the ever increasing demands of our rehearsal and performance schedules. Since we each wear our pointe shoes out differently, pointe shoes inevitably become a part of a dancer’s unique “footprint.” Every “dead” pair has served a ballerina in its own special way, and has helped to create countless inspiring moments. There is no better way to make a ballerina smile than to give her a brand new pair of shoes — crafted to her own specifications, helping to keep her feet protected, supported and injury free. Please help to keep us smiling and on our toes! Your support of MCB’s Toe Shoe Fund is personally appreciated by each and every one of us.” |
