POINTE SOCIETY ($2,000 - $9,999)

On average, OBT dancers are only able to use their pointe shoes for 8 - 12 hours. Each shoe is hand-made to custom-fit a ballerina's foot. Pointe shoes cost between $65 and $80 a pair.  At OBT, our dancers go through about 1,500 pairs of pointe shoes each season.  Become a member of the Pointe Society, Oregon Ballet Theatre's premiere support group, and help keep us on our toes!
