Dress Code for Primary Division Students for 2021-2022 Season

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 #11311C in Pink or Mondor Style #1635 in True Pink
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-toned 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.
A simple plain headband may be worn in class.
Ballet Skirts Ballet skirts are not allowed in class.
Brain/Body Boogie Dance or exercise apparel.
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 Students shall have the right to dress in accordance with their gender identity, within the constraints of the dress codes stated in CCD’s dress code policies.

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.
