  • Our Story

    Ballet Basics is a dancewear shop run from home in Edgemead, Cape Town that prides itself on personalised service and quality products. The shop does not only focus on ballet but includes all dance forms supplying local studios and dancers as well as dancers further afield. Ballet Basics is run by Belinda Mortley and as mom of a dancer, she realises how much children love to dance but is also aware of their parent's pockets. We are very excited to offer online shopping to our customers who are further away. If there is an item you can’t find in our online store please enquire, so that we can source it for you. Likewise, if you are a teacher please contact Belinda regarding wholesale prices for studios.

  • Starter Kits

    I remember when my daughter started dancing and adding up the cost of the various items needed in my head as she fitted on, so I created the starter kit for my customers, so they know exactly what the cost will be when their daughters start ballet.

    The starter kit is ideal for dancer between the ages of 3 and 8 starting out or for those who have out grown all their dancewear. The starter kit consists of a sleeveless leotard, chiffon skirt, anklets and leather shoes with elastic included. It costs from R560.
