Dress Code for Primary Division Students 

Leotard (Girls) Plain & unadorned black leotard
Shirt (Boys) Plain white short sleeve crew-neck t-shirt (no logos)
Tights Girls – Pink full-footed ballet tights (no footless or rolled-up tights)
Boys – Opaque black dance tights or black dance leggings over black socks
Shoes Girls – Pink leather ballet shoes with full sole
Boys – Black leather ballet shoes with full sole
Hair Girls – Bun with hairnet, bobby pins and hair clips (no bangs or wispies)
Boys – Short and neat, or pulled into a ponytail if long
Tap (Girls & Boys) Dress code + low-heeled tap shoes
A Special Note for Girls Girls’ tights serve as underwear beneath their leotards, be sure to buy dance tights which have a cotton crotch. Underwear inhibit movement and are not allowed under tights. We know this can be a bit of a surprise for younger dancers, but they adjust quickly.
A Special Note for Boys Boys and men should always wear dance briefs or a dance belt under their tights. These items serve the same purpose as a jockstrap and protect a male dancer from injury. You can purchase dance briefs and dance belts from Boulder Body Wear.

Help avoid an uncomfortable situation for your dancer by explaining these aspects of ballet dress code ahead of time, and arrive to class in proper attire. This will also prepare them for our year-end Gala and other performances as they progress.
