 Aspiring young dancers, plus their older mentors, took the stage Dec. 17 for the annual Just for Kix holiday show.  

The festive show featured dancers from pre-school all the way to Pelican Rapids High School—more than 70 young people in total.  The high school Valkyries Dance Squad joined the festivities, with its 2023 routine, “Twilight Zone.” All of the dancers performed en masse, with “Jingle Bellls” as the finale.  

The program was under the direction of area Kix director Amy Potts, who has more than 20 years of experience with Kix—in the Pelican area for the past two seasons.  

Potts thanked High school coaches Dacia Johnson and Brittney LaPoint for their assistance with the program.  

The theme of the show was “Just Kickin’ with my Gnomies,” held at the Pelican High School Leaders gym.
