Ballerina Couture

Tina Pereira

Born in Port of Spain, Trinidad, Tina Pereira is an award winning ballerina.

Dancing with The National Ballet of Canada and the Dutch National Ballet, Tina has thrilled audiences with her stunning performances in iconic role like the Nutcracker's Sugar Plum Fairy, Carmen, Katerina in The Taming of the Shrew, and Lise in La Fille Mal Gardee. She has performed on theatre stages from her hometown Toronto, to NYC, LA, London, Amsterdam, and Paris. When she's not performing, Tina is giving her social media fans a behind-the-scenes look at what it really takes to be a ballerina businesswoman. 

Most recently, Tina can be seen wearing Ballerina Couture in 'A Nutcracker Christams' where she plays the role of "Juliette," and in 'On The Ropes" where she plays Chloe.

Ballerina Couture

Ballerina Couture came to life during Tina's brief time off stage due to an injury. Trying to solve her own wardrobe shortcomings, she started sewing her own leotards. It wasn't long before Tina's gorgeous designs caught the eyes of her peers, and she was commissioned to create custom designs for the biggest names in ballet. Ballerina Couture was born.

Each Ballerina Couture leotard is handmade to order in Toronto with form- fitting lycra and spandex, with impeccable attention to fit.

A modern take on classic prima ballerina style, Tina Pereira’s designs are all about versatility—perfectly polished yet stylish enough to appeal to the sartorially—conscious woman.

Inspired by Tina’s fellow company members at the National Ballet of Canada, each piece is named after a ballerina (and her lucky number). 

Ballerina Couture is so fortunate to have super talented artist, Karolina Kuras, capture the essence of Ballerina Couture with her beautiful photography! 

The Idea

Timeless, effortless elegance from the stage, to the studio, to the street. 

Style & Quality

The meticulously-crafted collection focuses on fit and fabric, featuring a gorgeous array of colourful, buttery-soft leotards that pair as well with pointe shoes and a tight bun as they do with denim and heels. 

100% Handmade in Canada

Designed by Tina Pereira, and handmade in Toronto, Ballerina Couture is a chic collection of stylish leotards for contemporary dancer. All leotards come fully lined.
