Albert Lea dance instructor attends national convention

Published 2:29pm Saturday, August 31, 2013

Albert Lea Just for Kix director Aimee Struck attended the 2013 Just for Kix annual convention with more than 147 other program directors from across the country in Brainerd at Cragun’s Resort from July 28 to 30.

Struck has been the Albert Lea Just for Kix director for 17 years. She has also coached the Albert Lea High School dance team as an assistant coach with Jennifer Sims for one season and was a co-head coach with Allison Ciota for two seasons.

“I really enjoy working with dancers and watching them grow and improve,” Struck said. “I feel Just for Kix gives dancers a good foundation for their dance team years. It is also a fun and rewarding program for those who choose not to try out for their high school team.

The Convention offered educational and programming classes to assist in furthering dance curriculums and held sessions on resources for program development.
