Ballet Shoe Appeal
With over 50 performances a year and an intense and rigorous training and rehearsal schedule, the dancers of Ballet Cymru go through hundreds pairs of ballet shoes each year. From a distance, all shoes look alike, but up close each shoe is specifically designed to fit each individual dancer.
