Uniform Requirements

All uniforms must be the specific Mirella style number for your class level.  

No exceptions, everyone in the corps de ballet looks the same!

All uniforms are sold at PBT, DO NOT buy your uniform until you have been placed in the correct class by PBT teachers. ALL ballet students must wear full-sole, leather ballet shoes, also available at PBT. No canvas, no split soles. Dance paws may be worn for contemporary/lyrical.


Pointe shoes: A special class field trip will be scheduled with your teacher for your first pointe shoe purchase. This is a very special day for the students. If buying pointe shoes on your own we recommend SF Dancewear. DO NOT sew ribbons or elastics or wear your shoes until your teacher checks your shoes in class. They are not returnable is there is any sign of wear.

Boys' Uniform: Black shorts or pants with white t-shirt, black or pink leather ballet shoes. Please note that all classes are co-ed
