- Ballet Slippers - Cynthia King offers relatively affordable slippers with vegan soles for children and adults.
- Pointe Shoes - Grishko offers custom vegan options. Sansha also makes their "Recital" style with a cellulose sole.
- Tap Shoes - Look for non-leather options such as this shoe or check out Alternative Stores' collection.
- Jazz Shoes - Look for canvas options such as this black pair or this nude pair.
- Modern Options - Dance Paws are accidentally vegan.
- Ballroom Shoes - Check out U.K. stores such as Ethical Wares and Alternative Stores.
- Leotards - I was able to find one recycled leotard, but generally there aren't a lot out there. Gaiam also has a few options, but mostly in the unitard category.
- Other apparel - If your class allows you to wear what you want, check out brands such as Gaiam, Athleta, and Blue Canoe for athletic apparel made of eco-friendly and sustainable materials.
- Leg Warmers - Companies such as Maggie's Organics and Omnitom Yoga make organic cotton leg warmers.
- Tights - PACT makes organic cotton tights, although they aren't currently available in ballet pink. Maggie's Organics also have a few options.
