Saratoga En Pointe Brings Ballet Shoe Art to Saratoga

Saratoga has long been known for its glorification of horses, but another popular part of Saratoga culture is dance. The city plays host to the annual Dance Flurry Festival, along with elaborate galas, the National Museum of Dance and the New York City Ballet summer season.

Anyone who has been to Saratoga in the past ten years is sure to have seen the 23 Saratoga fiberglass horses that have decorated the streets downtown since 2002; so it was about time they did the same to recognize Saratoga's dance culture!

Well this May, the streets became even more lively because The National Museum of Dance has selected 24 artists for a project called Saratoga En Pointe! Each artist decorated a five-foot tall fiberglass ballet shoe sculpture. These fiberglass ballet shoes are displayed throughout the City of Saratoga at select locations. The creations were unveiled on May 31, 2013.
