Daddy Daughter Dance 

Dancers ages 3-12 years old who want to experience a dance with their Daddy onstage!  

The Daddy/Daughter dance is an experience that will last a lifetime!  Spending time at rehearsal and working through choreography with your daughter is never time wasted.  The memories of class are as significant as performing the actual dance on stage in front of an audience. This time with your daughter is for you and your daughter… it is unique, important and very special.  All rehearsals are “Closed”, meaning Moms, friends, and family may not watch the daddy daughter rehearsals.

For the June recital performance, the dancers wear a white dress and the dads wear black pants and white shirt.  Since we know it can be frustrating locating a white dress we will have one available for you to order at additional expense ($65).  Please let us know at time of registration if you would like to purchase the dress.

Dancers must be 3 years of age by January 1, 2020 to participate.  We will have 2 different groups (Show II and Show III)

There will be 5 rehearsals on the following dates:

Sat., March 7-Show II:  1:30-2 pm Show III: 2:15-2:45 pm at studio
Sat., April 18 -Show II:  12:30-1 pm Show III: 1:15-1:45 pm at studio
Sat., May 2   -Show II: 12:30-1 pm    Show III: 1:15-1:45 pm at studio

We realize that many dads have busy schedules, however, rehearsal attendance is very important. 

Register for Daddy Daughter Mini Session online through your parent portal. 

Deadline is March 1 as we have limited spots.
