As most of you know I am a full time ballet student/dancer. In order to properly dance ballet with minimum risks of injury i need good pointe shoes that fit me perfectly. After trying many types of pointe shoes,recently I found the perfect pointes for me but ideally I need 3-4 pairs a month because I dance 4h daily in them. Currently I am preparing for a really importnat annual School Production and final exams, so our rehearsals are increased... more I practice in the pointe shoes the quicker they soften.
After only a week my pointe shoes are totally "dead" as we say in the ballet slang... that means I can't use them anymore because they become soft and cannot support me.
4 pairs of pointe shoes cost 240 euros.... meaning 240 euros a month just for pointe shoes + additional expenses such as: monthly sports massage, elastics for pointe shoes, band-aid etc. that brings us to around 300 euros a month.
Ballet is a very expensive art... ballet dancers are athletes and need proper physical care and shoes to minimise all possible injuries.
I humbly ask you to help me with these expenses so I can continue with my ballet education in the best and safest possible way. Each and every donation helps a lot.
Thank you for helping me. <3
