Send a pair of ballet shoes to Cuba
The Ballet Shoes for Cuba project enables dance lovers and friends of Cuba in Britain to help support the next generation of Cuban dancers by sending a pair of ballet shoes to Cuba. For just £20 you can send a pair of shoes to a young dance student on the island.
You can also enclose a personalised message on a card inside the shoe by simply emailing us your message [up to a maximum of 30 words] once you have made your donation, and/or writing it in the message box of your JustGiving donation.
Your donation will help towards to the costs of transporting shoes donated to the Music Fund by the Royal Ballet to Cuba.
Click here to donate £20 via our Just Giving Ballet Shoes project page and send a pair of ballet shoes to Cuba today.
