Past Rapid City Ballet Partnership: Prima School of Dancing

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Rapid City children from Prima School of Dancing. Prima School of Dancing has been an outstanding member of the Black Hills community for more than 40 years. Prima has historically been the Black Hills' largest dance studio with a legacy of quality dance education. Prima School of Dancing is proud to include the AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE® National Training Curriculum, a breakthrough 8 level program that combines high quality artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development. The ABT® National Training Curriculum consists of a comprehensive set of age-appropriate, outcome-based guidelines to provide the highest quality ballet training to dance students of all ages and skill levels. At Prima, we are fortunate to offer classes on both wood and marley floor surfaces, making us the only school in Rapid City to offer the 2 best floor types for dance. Prima has a responsibility to be positive role models in our dancers’ lives and we cherish each student. This mindset is a prerequisite for the teaching staff, all instructors are willing to embrace the responsibility of being a role model for students. At Prima, we ultimately want each child to experience the blessing of achieving their goals, whether it is having fun dancing once a week or taking as many classes as possible to prepare for a career in professional dance.
