BAREFOOT DANCE STUDIO
WHO WE ARE
Barefoot Dance Studio was founded in 2007 and lies in the heart of Rapid City. Bringing an inclusive approach to children of all ages and abilities, Barefoot is sure to be the perfect fit for your family. Barefoot offers a fun and professional recreational program as well as a winning competitive dance team. Barefoot offers Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Tap, Lyrical, Musical Theatre, Hip Hop, Acro and Cheer year round and hosts phenomenal recitals and performance opportunities in our beloved community and beyond!
We believe that each student has their own set of needs, strengths and desires in dancing. Our goal is to meet each student where they are on their journey towards their own personal goals. We will assist in a nurturing way by drawing from our own expertise and experiences. It is in focusing on the process towards success that we can impact each student the most, in and out of class.
We respect each of our students equally and strive to set examples of how respect is the framework for success; in dance and life outside the studio. We respect your need for family time, specialized attention for your child, integrity in business and your dancer's needs. Our instructors are always available to discuss your child's progress. We teach that respect means coming to class on time, being dressed appropriately and treating the instructor and other classmates positively.
Barefoot Dance Studio is proud of the inclusive environment we have created. No one student is more important than another. It is important to us to create opportunities in the arts for all members of our community and we devote time and energy to outreach as part of our curriculum and philosophy. We love to watch our dancers impact the people we live and play with throughout Rapid City.
Barefoot Dance Studio will never settle for ordinary. We love to take chances and take the expected and turn it into something extraordinary. From the classroom to recitals, we are always looking to push ourselves creatively. We believe that if students are nurtured in a creative environment they have more opportunity to find their own voice and express it. When students can express themselves, they are more likely to understand each other and build tolerance and respect for each other’s differences and find new ways to relate to one another.
