The Royal Opera House has just launched the perfect present for ballet lovers: the gift of a pair of pointe shoes for a Royal Ballet dancer.
Beautifully packaged and including a gift card featuring Soloist Francesca Hayward, this gift will buy a pair of pointe shoes for a Royal Ballet dancer on behalf of the recipient. The gift card includes a piece of real ballet shoe ribbon, to say thank you from The Royal Ballet.
Footwear is essential to ballet, and the right shoes enable our dancers to give their best performances. The Pointe Shoes Appeal helps to raise money to support the £250,000 annual cost of ballet footwear for Royal Ballet dancers.
This very special gift is priced at £39 – the cost of a pair of pointe shoes with ribbon – and is only available to buy in the Royal Opera House Shop or by calling Sacha Glasgow-Smith on +44 (0)20 7212 9510. All proceeds go towards supporting The Royal Ballet’s Pointe Shoes Appeal.
