Tutu.com Ballet Costume Rentals

Tutu.com rents out beautiful, professional-quality ballet costumes for both men and women dancers. From tutus and tiaras to dance dresses and men’s tunics, we have many costumes from which to choose.

 

Individual Costume Rental for Soloists or Competitions

We rent to individuals competing in Competitions like the Youth America Grand Prix, Prix de Lausanne, and other major international ballet competitions. We also rent principal and soloist’s costumes for many ballets - The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, etc.

Aside from the classics, we have contemporary tutus and assorted dance dresses available for rent as well. Some costumes come with headpieces. Those needing a more elaborate tiara can rent one separately.

Please use the forms below to send us accurate measurements.

Dancers should never measure themselves. Do not add “growing room” to measurements OR subtract from actual measurements for anticipated weight loss.  We make each costume with as much “wiggle room” for change as is possible considering the complexity of the design.

To process a rental, we need a signed contract and credit card payment. Contract must be returned to us signed at least ten days before the commencement of the rental. Any last minute rentals not set up and paid for at least ten days in advance will incur a rush fee of $75 on top of the normal rental fee. We need time to inspect, clean and refurbish costumes between rentals and shorter turn-around times necessitates we go into over-time to administer them properly.
A cleaning fee of $25 is due with contract.
At the time of rental, we authorize a returnable deposit of $300 to $500 on a credit card of your choice. Your deposit is returned once the rental arrives back at the costume shop, less any late fees or damage fees. Normal wear and tear is expected, especially with pas de deux work (Tutus are high maintenance!).
Shipping fees both ways are paid by client, in advance, once the costume has been packed and weighed. We will send a return label in the box. A reduced rental rate of $12.50 is charged on shipping days.

Tutu.com Rentals are shipped USPS Express both ways, (1-2 days).  Express Shipping averages between $40 and $50, but can be more or less.  It depends on where the rental is going and what you rent. In our many years of experience shipping rentals, we've found USPS Express with one to two-day delivery to be the most cost-effective and efficient method for both the renter and Tutu.com.
