As a poster cover pup (her "Ballerina Dreams" photograph is the logo for Dancers Love Dogs), Vivi is famously loved by the dancers in South Africa who dance annual performances free of charge to raise funds for their not-for-profit organization, Dancers Love Dogs. Founded in May 2012, this growing charity has already successfully helped more than 3,000 underpriviledged dogs in South Africa's animal shelters. Read more about Dancers Love Dogs.
About the poster photo:
The pointe shoe worn in the photograph was a gift most generously donated by the legendary American Prima Ballerina, Gelsey Kirkland. Ms. Kirkland wore this very pair of pointe shoes in her unforgettable, historical (and captured on film) 1978 performance of "La Sylphide" with American Ballet Theatre at the Metropolitan Opera House in Lincoln Center, New York. Gelsey Kirkland's buttery pointe shoes are truly the gift that keeps on giving - "Vivi's Ballerina Dreams" have come true and Dancers Love Dogs is expanding internationally to help more homeless animals in need, while the magic of Ms. Kirkland's very special pair of beautifully preserved pointe shoes lives on into the future.
