Ballet Uniform Details

Find information and resources to keep your ballerina learning in between classes. We also share links we love and trusted places where you can find all of your ballet, jazz and tap dancewear supplies.

What to wear
We recommend MDM ballet shoes for all our dancers

MDM is the only foot wear that has been specifically designed to provide every dancer with the correct levels of support, shock absorption and alignment guidance. It is for these reasons we encourage all our dancers towards MDM. MDM shoes can be purchased at Capezio by Ballet Emporium at Bondi Junction

18 months – 5 years: Whatever your little dancer desires

Little dancers want to wear what inspires them so there is no official uniform for the Tutu Toddlers and Little Tutus ballet classes, our littlest dancers who are 18 months to 5 years old.

Tutus, fairy dresses, dress ups, or shorts or leggings with a top are all acceptable, as long as your little one feels good and can move freely. It is also preferable that dresses are not too long and do not cover the knees.

We highly recommend the MDM Mini Ballet shoe for our tiny dancers.
