Surge of interest changes dance ownership

12/31/09 (Thu)

Dance is defined as an artistic form of nonverbal communication. Young women in the Center and Stanton areas now have a greater opportunity to let out the music inside after a summer decision by the school board.

The idea of cutting her Just for Kix contract down had been weighing on Nichole Albers’ mind and conflicting with balancing a budding family life. But then the Center-Stanton teachers negotiating committee beat her to a decision. The school board agreed that the district could support an elementary program with Albers as the director in June. Kids can still choose the Just for Kix program in Mandan, Bismarck or Hazen but Center is no longer a location.
