It’s your daughter’s chance to share the spotlight with the special guy in her life!
Dads and daughters have the chance to attend up to 4 in-studio rehearsals together to learn their dance and also practice at home with their take home DVD. All practice classes and rehearsals are closed to moms! Don’t worry – we’ll take good care of them, and it makes for an AWESOME surprise!
Dads will receive a SPECIAL flower bouquet to give to his daughter for letting him share the moment with her. It’s an event you WON’T want to miss!

1. Does it have to be a dad?
No. Grandfathers, Uncles, Older brothers, or a family friend can substitute! Male partner must be at least 16 years of age. Moms, however, can not participate unless they are part of a same-sex parenting pair. Sorry moms….it’s just not as cool
2. What if my child doesn’t seem to want to do the dance even in practice classes?
A child’s response in class and on stage can be very different. We recommend carefully considering if your child will likely do well before registering, as the registration fee is non-refundable. It is required that children be at least 2.5 years of age to participate. The Daddy/Daughter dance is an experience that will last a lifetime and spending time at rehearsal and working through difficult situations with your daughter is as significant as performing the actual dance. Try to remember this important fact when you feel confused, frustrated and tired so this can be the best experience possible.
3. How does it work with Dad’s backstage?
We still reserve our cafeteria space where girls wait before their performance for female helpers only. Dads will be directed where to go, and what to do via email communication in the weeks leading up to the show. Dads will all meet at the stage doors right before the performance and we will bring their daughters to them. Don't worry - we walk them through everything the day before the show at the dress rehearsal where their attendance is required!
4. Will Dad’s still be able to watch the show?
YES! We know this is what you are here for! The Daddy Daughter Dance is one of the first numbers, so that dads can re-join their families in the audience. We will even give you a seat saver so that other audience members know it’s OK to save that seat for your special guy.
5. What should Dad's wear?
For the 2020 Summer Outdoor Recital, we ask that Dads wear khaki shorts, we will provide a t-shirt, and sneakers. We will provide additional accessories.
