Dress Code for Primary Division Students for 2019-2020 Season

Leotard (Girls) Capezio Style #3946c – Pink or Capezio Style #11311C
Shirt (Boys) Body Wrappers white shirt #B400
Tights Girls – Pink full-footed ballet tights (no footless or rolled-up tights)

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.
