Pointe shoes are more than a ballerina’s most important tool, they are an extension of her art form. They are part of the dancer herself.

Every ballerina has a story to share about her pointe shoes. The way she cares for them, the memories that still make her laugh or cry, her most unforgettable performance. 

If you would like to be part of the story, please consider giving to 
Queensland Ballet’s Pointe Shoe Appeal.
