Performance/Competition Groups

Prima is proud to provide a place for every type of dancer. You can dance recreationally, perform in the community or go all in with our competitive teams. With extensive schedule, level and class options, we are the most well-rounded program in the area.  Dancers may audition for Prima’s traveling competitive team or local Training Group teams. Performance team dancers are recognized in the community with lead roles in community theater productions and “The Nutcracker” each season.

The Training Group is Prima’s premiere performance group. It is dedicated to enriching its members’ dance experiences through a variety of performance opportunities designed to educate and inspire individuals in the community by exposing them to the art of dance. The group is available for booking at local events.

Prima School of Dancing’s Company team is comprised of auditioned dancers who strive to compete locally and regionally in South Dakota, Wyoming, and Colorado.

Tuition Payment Options

There are 2 convenient ways to make tuition payments: AUTO-MONTHLY or ANNUALLY.  If you choose AUTO-MONTHLY payments they will be drawn automatically on the 5th of each month from your bank account.  If you pay ANNUALLY you receive 7% off the annual tuition.  ANNUAL payment is due in full at time of registration or prior to August 31st (unpaid annual accounts will automatically transfer to automonthly).  There is a $25 yearly registration fee for each student or $35 per family household.  Please ask about our discounted tuition rates for family members living in the same household. All tuition includes a 6.5% sales tax.  No refunds will be given for missed lessons; however, students are welcome to attend “make-up” classes for those lessons missed prior to January 31st.  A 30 day written notice is needed to stop auto-monthly payments.  The monthly tuition rate is the same whether there are 3, 4, or 5 weeks per month.
