  • Prima School of Dancing started as a very small studio in 1964, but since then we have grown to become the largest dance school in Rapid City. We are constantly evaluating and improving our facilities and continually training our staff to ensure that we provide our students and parents with the best experience possible. That positive experience is our mission — to use an enjoyable and enriching activity to improve your child’s rhythm, flexibility, balance, musicality, poise, and self-discipline.

    • My years at Prima have molded me into the person I am proud to say I have become. The love and nurturing from everyone here is amazing. In my 12 years with Prima, I’ve been able to turn my love of dance into a full blown passion if this art.

    • I like Prima School of Dancing because they have great teachers and staff. Miss Christy, who has been my teacher for all the four years I have been into ballet and tap, is the best teacher ever. My dream is becoming a dance teacher or a famous ballerina.

    • For the last 11 years, I have had the greatest honor of calling Prima my second home and students my family. When I originally joined, I never realized that these people would become so incorporated into my life and make themselves a permanent part of who I am … If not for these teachers and students, I would not be half the person I am today.”
