Annual Appeal



pointeshoes_coverEvery year, West Australian ballerinas dance their way through more than 600 pairs of pointe shoes at a cost of $50,000. And if the role and the steps are especially demanding, principals can dance through a single pair of shoes in just one performance!


Beyond theatre performances. West Australian Ballet brings the magic of ballet to our community in countless ways, from open rehearsals at the Ballet Centre in Maylands to community classes for children and adults, performances at community events, and educational programs from Bunbury to Broome… all done in pointe shoes.


Celebrate the joy of ballet with us by donating a pair of pointe shoes for a ballerina. By making a tax-deductible gift of $75 you will gift a brand new pair of new pointe shoes to a dancer, an essential piece of equipment for rehearsals and performances, and the ultimate symbol of the ballet art-form. You will be playing a part in West Australian Ballet.


Please join us. Your gift of a pair of pointe shoes will be worn with pride and joy by West Australian Ballet dancers.

Every year, West Australian Ballet brings unspoken amounts of joy and enchantment to our community through the art of ballet. And every year, a substantial gap exists between income from our tickets, and the costs of maintaining our wide-ranging programmes.


You can help to bridge that gap by making a donation as part of our Annual Appeal. With your donation, exciting new ballet productions will be brought to our stage, young artists will receive unparalleled training opportunities, and West Australian Ballet will enrich our community with ballet performed at a world-class standard.


It is only with your donation that your ballet company will continue to flourish.
