She was classically trained as a ballet dancer from an early age, and danced solo at age 13 for a local ballet company.Von Teese got her stage name by adopting the name Dita as a tribute to silent film actress Dita Parlo.For her breakthrough December 2002 Playboy cover, she was required to have a surname, so she chose Von Treese from the phonebook.Though she originally wanted to be a ballerina, Von Teese states that "by 15, I was as good as I'd ever be."

She worked in a lingerie store as a salesgirl when she was 15, eventually as a buyer.
Von Teese has been fond of wearing elaborate lingerie such as corsets and basques with fully fashioned stockings ever since.In the magazine, this was misspelled as Von Teese, which she decided to stick with.
