CCB Dress Code Uniform and Policies

CCB DRESS CODE:
During the school year Connecticut Concert Ballet has a professional dress code for all students that enables the teacher to best see and evaluate each student, creates a clean and uniform look for the class and helps to foster discipline in the student. Students must adhere to the dress code at all times (both in studio and on Zoom).

CCB UNIFORM SWAP SHOP:
Feel free to stop in the studio anytime during studio hours to drop off your gently used uniform leotards that they won’t be needing this year. For each leotard you drop you will receive a voucher for a swap shop leotard (voucher can be used anytime throughout the year).

Ballet Dress Code

CCB UNIFORM BALLET LEOTARDS, T-SHIRTS & SKIRTS must be purchased online from Corps Dancewear. Use the Coupon Code that your received in your Registration Welcome Email for your special CCB discount.

*If you are unsure of your leotard size, you can make arrangements to try on our sample sizes at the studio.

CCB DRESS CODE POLICIES

  • For the safety and etiquette of ballet class, students are only allowed to wear small earrings. Long/dangling earrings are not allowed.
  • All other jewelry (including necklaces, bracelets, rings and facial jewelry) is not allowed.
  • Leg warmers, warmup clothing, street clothing and other items are a distraction to both student and teacher and are not permitted in any class – tight-fitting ballet sweaters are allowed in winter months.
  • Leotards and tights should be worn without underwear underneath.
  • Female students must come to classes and rehearsals with hair up and neatly secured in a classical bun. If you need assistance with hair, please see a member of our staff. *If you have short hair that cannot be placed in a bun, hair must be neatly secured off the face with headband, clips, etc.
  • Students must wear shoes at all times when walking around the building (i.e. – anything outside of the studio)
  • For the safety of all dancers, if eyeglasses are needed, please attach with a sports strap. Contacts are highly recommended for the more advanced dancer as an alternative to glasses.
  • Tights and leotards should be washed on a regular basis.
  • Tights should be footed; please do not wear cut-off tights.
  • All ballet slippers should have elastic straps sewn on securely across the ankles.

SOME OTHER HELPFUL TIPS:

-After you purchase new ballet shoes, put them on and tie a single knot in the drawstring so that the shoe fits comfortably around the top of the foot. Take off the shoe and tie a second and even third knot, cut the extra drawstrings off and tuck the ends inside the shoe. Do not tie the strings in a bow.

-CCB has a collection of used shoes. Feel free to drop off used shoes or find needed shoes at any time.

-Line drying dance clothes rather than using the clothes dryer will help them retain their elasticity and they will fit and last longer.

-Use a permanent marker to mark ALL dance clothing and shoes clearly with your dancer’s name
