hello again! I found this adorable dance outfit on Discount Dance and was wondering if i get it in black, do you think DD could wear it to ballet? Do you think it counts as a leo? 

Thank you moms for all putting up with my silly (but serious) questions [crazy]

It wouldn't count as a ballet leo in any studio DD has danced in.  Others may have had a different experience.

It says leotard in the description so I would argue that it is in fact a leo.  It might look strange with tights if they stick up into the mesh area.  I think it would probably be ok at our studio.

That's not a class leo, it's a costume (a leotard costume).  I don't think a ballet teacher would be amused (I'd say the same thing if it was covered in sequins.

DD would not have been allowed to wear that leo for her ballet classes.  

I love it, but she would not have wanted to wear something like that to ballet even it were approved, definitely looks more costumey and not quite like ballet class.

That wouldn't pass muster at our ballet school unless it was an open dress code day.

I completely agree with emmymom! Pretty but not for class. And my DD would also agree.

Cute costume but absolutely not appropriate for a ballet class. That is a Leo meant to be worn without tights.

Not for class for sure. One of our soloists wears something similar for her Jazz solo.

Great costume! Definitely not appropriate for ballet. Maybe jazz with shorts

Yes it looks like a leotard, but no it doesn't look like a leotard for ballet class. DD's ballet teacher would definitely not approve of it. DD has some leotards that have mesh, but the mesh is either near the neckline or in the back. She would never wear a leotard to ballet class that shows her stomach. This would be great for a contemporary solo though.

It was cool to see this picture though, because the girl in the picture is actually one of dd's friends.

This is what I was going to say. It's also a very popular style at the comps I've been to this year.

Not likely - but when in doubt ask the teacher before you buy... you never know.

Our ballet teacher would send them home lol. I agree with meatball, it's a costume Leo and not a class leo.

Leo?  Yes.

Appropriate for most ballet classes?  No.

Wearable for some jazz/contemporary rehearsals?  Sure, depending on the school.

Very pretty, excellent base for a costume. It's definitely a leotard, but like others have said, not appropriate for ballet class. I could see it for conventions, no problem.

My dd wears one very similar to tech class before rehearsal once in awhile, but there is no dress code for Companies.  They can wear whatever they want.  It would not have been allowed in her school classes except for Saturday morning classes when there was no dress code.

Our studio is conservative in terms of leos and costumes so we wouldn't be able to. Very cute though!

My DD wears something very similar for her gymnastics classes. She wears it occasionally with gymnastics shorts over it. 
For competiotion we've recently purchased this bright anf juicy leotard at the rhythmic gymnastic store:

The quality is amazing!
