State Street Ballet: Support

Donate Today

In a perfect world, the arts would be self-supporting. In reality, ticket sales cover only half of our operating expenses. We rely on your generosity to make up the difference and are always grateful for any and all levels of support. We are a non-profit organization, and all donations are fully tax-deductible. 

Pointe Shoe Fund

Pointe shoes are one of our most essential tools for producing great performances. Beautiful and awe-inspiring, they are also hand-made and require individual customization from each dancer before they can grace the stage. Each pair costs $100, some will last only through a single performance, others will last barely a week. State Street Ballet goes through an average of 300 pairs every season, costing us nearly $30,000 on shoes alone. Your tax-deductible donation will help keep us on our toes! Please consider a gift at one of the following levels;

$100 - One pair of pointe shoes for one dancer

$500 - Five pairs of pointe shoes, enough for Nutcracker rehearsals for one dancer

$1000 - Ten pairs of pointe shoes, enough for Nutcracker rehearsals and performances for one dancer

$5000 - Pointe shoes for one dancer for the 2017/18 Season
