“Starting my 19th year in this community is a great accomplishment and speaks highly of the service, support and reputation JFK has in Albert Lea,” said Struck. “Dance team is very popular in our state and, having a studio background myself, it is nice to offer a different style of dance with kick.”
The convention offered educational and programming classes to assist in furthering the director’s dance curriculum and sessions on resources for program development.
Julie Davidge, the Just For Kix youth programs manager, said that the overall experience allows for the directors to come to Brainerd to collaborate.
“Bringing all of our directors together is a highlight of our year,” she said. “We take care of business for the upcoming season and discuss ways to continue to inspire and motivate our dancers.”
