No jewelry is permitted in class; only small stud earrings may be worn. Students are not permitted outside of the CBA building without street shoes on and clothes over dancewear.

TIGHTS:  CBA does not require a specific brand of tights for any of the classes, however we prefer students to wear convertible pink tights with a seam.  First Steps/Storybook Ballet students are NOT required to wear tights for class, however they will need tights for the CBA Spring Performance!
