Support projects - To your pointes!

To your pointes!

As symbols of virtuosity, lightness and refinement, pointe shoes are worn every day by the dancers of the Ballet of the Opéra national de Paris, in the rehearsal studio and on stage. Participate in their financing and support their excellence... to the tips of their toes!

The company's dancers use around 10,000 pairs of pointe shoes each season, and a Star dancer may wear up to 3 pairs for a single performance. The dancers wear demi-pointes and custom-made soft boots for most classical and neo-classical ballets.

Serving as emblems of the French School of Dance, these slippers allow dancers to work at their best every day.

The “En pointes!" campaign has already helped to pay for nearly 3,000 pairs of pointes.

By contributing, become part of the daily life of one of today's most prestigious companies!

Each level of donation corresponds to a concrete need: €60 1 pair of pointe shoes; €300 1 pair of made-to-measure men's boots; €5,000 together of pointe shoes for the last season of a First Dancer; €10,000 pointe and demi-pointe for 7 performances of La Bayadère by Rudolf Nureyev; €15,000 pointe and demi-pointe for the entire series of Giselle by Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot (15 performances).
