Each custom designed pointe shoe has been worn by one of New Jersey Ballet’s exquisite ballerinas. NJB’s ballerinas spend hours each day turning, jumping, and rising up onto their toes.
Did you know a professional dancer goes through at least one pair of pointe shoes each week? At an average cost of $90 per pair, each NJB dancer requires at least 25 pairs of pointe shoes each season at NJB.
Company dancer Risa Mochizuki not only graces the stage with her beautiful artistry and impeccable technique, she also creates beautiful art when she is not performing. Each pointe shoe is customized by Ms. Mochizuki and these works of art can now be yours to display at home. Not only are they beautiful to display, each shoe purchased supports NJB’s Emergency Fund to help the company through the challenges associated with COVID-19. NJB looks forward to returning to the stage, but until we can be together again, NJB will continue to create new exciting content for you to stay engaged with us online.
