|Hair||Hair should be pulled back from the face in a secure ponytail or bun. Bangs permitted in this level only. Dancers with short hair should secure loose pieces with clips or may use a solid black headband. Dancers will be required to wear a secure “CCD Bun” without bangs for performances.|
|Ballet Skirts||Ballet skirts are not allowed in class.|
|Brain/Body Boogie||There is no required dress code for Children’s Brain/Body Boogie. Dancers who have ballet class directly before or after BBB should wear their dress code underneath any additional clothing. Attire should be easy and comfortable to move in and allow for a free range of motion.|
|A Special Note for Girls||Girl’s tights serve as underwear dance beneath their leotards, be sure to buy dance tights which have a cotton crotch. Underwear inhibits 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.|
|A Special Note for our Transgender Students||You may use the dress code with which you identify. A gender-neutral bathroom/changing area is available and belongings may be stored in our general-purpose lockers. CCD is also committed to continuing to evolve with how we provide a safe space for our transgender community. As such, we are currently researching further dress code options. If there is another option which would make you or your dancer feel safe and accepted, let’s have a conversation, so the organization may continue to evolve.|
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.
