On March 9, 2013 the Middle Kix Just For Kix Team competed in the United We Dance Competition in Waverly, IA at Wartburg College. 

The team performed to the song Rumor Has It.

Middle Kix competed in the Kick division. The team was awarded FIRST Place.

The Harmony Just For Kix is in it’s sixth year of performance and includes local area students grades Pre-K to eighth. The Just For Kix local director is Kari Berg.

Our goal at Just For Kix is to give as many dancers and programs the opportunity to perform and compete with other teams. Performing in front of different audiences is essential to the growth of a dancer and competition teaches many great skills and lessons like teamwork and great sportsmanship!

Just For Kix is a national leader in dance instruction and is committed to youth advancement through performance. Based out of Brainerd, Minnesota, the organization has over 200 locations nationwide in 10 states.  Annually, the company provides nine United We Dance competitive opportunities for affiliated dance team programs to compete.  Coming together to compete provides an opportunity for teamwork and promotes excellence. Just For Kix also provides dance camps and an Outback Bowl Performance Tour travel opportunity for its dancers.
