CECCHETTI SYLLABUS UNIFORMS

For all Cecchetti classes (Primary I-Grade VII), we require a class uniform. Each level has a required uniform style and color. If a dancer is in more than one Cecchetti level, they will need more than one leotard.  Hair must be in a bun, no jewelry is permitted. Girls need Revolution Prima Pink footed tights with clean pink ballet shoes. Boys should wear black dance tights, black ballet shoes, a dance belt and the a white shirt from Corps Dancewear for their grade level.


All Cecchetti class uniforms are available from Corps Dancewear at the link below.

Tights and shoes are not included in the price of the costume. In an effort to ensure that costumes are delivered in time for studio photographs and for organized distribution to our students, costume order forms are due in of November. Costume manufacturers do not accept cancellations or offer refunds. Therefore, Ann Parsley School of Dance does not refund costume fees. Costumes cannot be ordered unless the deposit is paid for in full.
