We make the experience of music possible for ALL

Founded in 2016, Feel the Beat is a Colorado-based 501c3 nonprofit and dance studio dedicated to making the experience of dance and music possible for all including those who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and/or with or without disabilities. So much more than a dance studio, Feel the Beat is for all skill levels, ages, and abilities. We use a carefully crafted curriculum that engages students’ senses, strengthens muscle groups, improves coordination, and teaches the fundamentals of music, dance principles, and choreography while connecting to the music through our bone conduction vibrational dance floor. We offer a variety of class options including weekly classes, private group classes, school programs as well as accessible events. Learn more at feelthebeat.dance.


Dedicated to bringing the expressive world of dance and music education to individuals who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and individuals with Disabilities, our mission at Feel the Beat is to ensure that no one feels left out in the experience of music or dance! Music and dance education is equally accessible to individuals of ALL abilities.

Background Statement

In 2016, Feel the Beat founders Jari and Julia met while teaching in a multiple needs classroom. Their students' motivation grew when accessible music and dance activities were incorporated into lessons. Seeking more opportunities for their students, they discovered there was a lack of accessible programs and an evident need for more ~ so they decided to create their own!

Dedicated to bridging this gap, Jari and Julia worked with engineers to pioneer vibrating dance floors so students could experience sound through feeling. Today, we have a way to transform music from a listening experience to a physically immersive one, turning the inaccessible into the inclusive without limitations. This technology has impacted over 2,000 students, representing only a small fraction of the vast community.
