Welcome to my POINTE SHOES for a CURE fundraising page!

I am Petra Conti,

International Principal Dancer, Principal Ballerina with Los Angeles Ballet, former Prima Ballerina at La Scala in Milan, and former Principal Dancer with the Boston Ballet. 

In 2016 I was diagnosed with Kidney Cancer (RCC).  After a very succesful surgery, I am now fully recovered... But cancer has changed me...I believe it has changed me into a better person, a stronger and more caring human being. 

I am happy I can continue spreading emotions and lift up thousands of hearts through my art. But what if art, and ballet in particular, could do even more than "only" helping the spirit? 

I am partnering with CURE Childhood Cancer because I believe art could help children with cancer in an even more meaningful way!

In 2 years POINTE SHOES FOR A CURE RAISED MORE THAN $10,000! 

I invite you to jump on this mission with me, by donating to CURE.  

Every effort is very much appreciated ... but

 DONATIONS OF $100.00 AND MORE GET A SPECIAL THANK YOU FROM ME: A SIGNED PAIR OF MY USED POINTE SHOES!! 

(Please note that due to limited pointe shoes availability, and to high international demand, it might take me up to a month to send you a pair of my signed pointe shoes... Also, let me know if you want a special dedication or have a special request!) 

In order to get the signed pointe shoes please write an email to:

contact.petraconti@gmail.com

with your address! (I only get to see your name and donation amount here.)

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. (But remember to send me an email with the address where you want the pointe shoes shipped to!).

Thank you for your continued support!

P.S. Pointe Shoes for a Cure has generated so much interest and awareness that I have decided to continue this fundraising until my retirement, therefore until I will be able to donate my used pointe shoes :) ...

Yours,

Petra.
