Dance director attends conference

BRAINERD, Minn. — Torri Price attended the 2013 Just For Kix annual convention with more than 147 Just For Kix youth program directors from Minnesota, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Mexico, Texas, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Colorado and South Dakota. The 2013 Directors Convention was held July 28-30 at Forestview Middle School and The Legacy at Cragun’s Resort.

Price has been the Princeton Just For Kix director for three years. “Being able to share my love of dance with other women that have the same passion is an incredible feeling. Knowing that we, as directors, are helping to shape the youth in our communities by gaining self-confidence and dance knowledge is the reason I do this year after year.”

The Princeton Just For Kix offers core classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays and does an array of 6-8 week special sessions that include lyrical, hip-hop, conditioning, and father/daughter classes. Dancers also have the opportunity to compete at the United We Dance competition in Waverly, Iowa.

The Convention offered multiple educational and programming classes to assist in furthering the director’s dance curriculum and sessions on resources for program development. One of the director favorites is learning choreography for the upcoming performance season. Classes offered included: Hip Hop, Jazz, Kick, Lyrical, Pom, Tabata and Novelty.

For 29 years, Just For Kix has held a directors convention. Just For Kix orchestrates youth dance programs in 10 states at nearly 200 locations engaging more than 20,000 youth dancers.

The Princeton Just For Kix Dance program offers dance classes for youth ages Pre-K to adult. Students can enroll at any time. To learn more, visit: or contact Torri Price at 815-303-2633.
