Early Dance Division – ages 3 & 4
Our 2020-2021 season will be a mixture of in-person and zoom classes. This allows both dancers and instructors alike to participate fully either in person on a limited basis, online, or a combination of both. While it’s our desire and plan to return to fully in-studio instruction and rehearsal as soon as possible, we will continue to follow the guidance of local, state, and federal health officials and eagerly await a world in which the COVID-19 virus is mitigated to an extent that will allow this. Our hybrid schedule will include an A and B rotating schedule. One week, a group of dancers will be in-person at CCD while the other dancers are conducting classes via Zoom. The following week, both groups will rotate to the opposite method of learning. We will attempt to pair families so their classes will be on the same rotation schedule. All students will also have the opportunity to attend all classes via Zoom only if this is what makes them most comfortable. For the Adult schedule, some of our Faculty will teaching via Zoom only. Please visit https://ccdance.org/adult-program/ for all Adult Class info.
Registration for the 2020-2021 season will begin on August 3, 2020. Priority Registration is from August 3-8. Call the front desk at 303.466.5685 to register during those dates. Online registration begins August 9.
Please read our Fall 2020 Safety Protocols.
Please print and sign our CCD Fall 2020 COVID-19 Waiver before taking any classes beginning August 9, 2020.

Dress Code for Early Dance Division for 2020-2021
New dress code goes into effect August 24, 2020. CCD is beginning a three year transition to present a more equitable and inclusive version of the standard, classical dress code. At this time, we are working with our partners at Boulder Body Wear to find reliable, high-quality vendors, but a consistent offering will take time. Until our dress code transition is complete, we will allow female dancers to choose between wearing pink tights and pink shoes OR flesh colored tights and shoes. Our ultimate goal is to have tights and shoes which match each female dancer’s skin tone.
|Leotard (Girls)||Capezio Style #3946c – Pink or Capezio Style #11311C|
|Shirt (Boys)||Body Wrappers white shirt # B400|
|Tights||Girls – Flesh-tone tights to match as close to the student’s natural skin tone as possible. Please see our friends at BBW to help you find the perfect match.
Boys – Body Wrappers black ballet tights (B90)
|Shoes||Girls – Flesh-tone canvas shoes to match as close to the student’s natural skin tone as possible. Please see our friends at BBW to help you find the perfect match.
Boys – Black canvas ballet slippers
|Hair||Girls – Hair must be pulled back away from the face, either in a bun or ponytail.
Boys – Hair should be neat and away from the face. Long hair must be pulled into a ponytail.
|Brain/Body Boogie||Will update as soon as possible.|
|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 most adjust quickly. If your child needs a little more time to get used to this new experience, please work with your child’s teacher to make a plan which helps the dancer prepare for performance time.|
|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.
