Mahnomen Just For Kix classes are currently held at Mahnomen Elementary and Waubun High School. My experience as your dancer's teacher and coach roots in having taught performers of all ages, mostly youth- for nearly 18 years. My dance training is in kick, pom, cheer, ballet, jazz/lyrical, musical theatre, and tap. Previous experience also includes acting and performing in musical theatre, professionally in commercial, film, and radio, and directing touring children's theatre with emphasis on musical theatre and movement. I have directed high school theatre and have been a contracted artist for choreographing high school show choirs. In our classes, we emphasize teamwork, technique, style, and performance goals. Ada Just For Kix has been under my direction for the past five years. April of 2016 I began directing Mahnomen Just For Kix.
