It’s your daughter’s chance to share the spotlight with the special grown-up in her life! Grown-ups and dancers have the chance to attend up to 1 in-studio rehearsal together to learn their dance and also practice at home with their online video. Both parents and dancers MUST attend the dress rehearsal for their show. All practice classes and rehearsals are closed to spouses! Don’t worry – we’ll take good care of them, and it makes for an AWESOME surprise!
Grown-ups will receive a SPECIAL flower bouquet to give to their dancer for letting them share the moment with their dancer. It’s an event you WON’T want to miss!
***YOU MUST BE REGISTERED FOR THE RECITAL TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SWEETHEART DANCE!***
Limited Space Available in Each Show!
$40 a grown-up
Non-Refundable – this also serves as parent’s ticket to the show!

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.
2. What if he can’t make it to all the studio practices?
It’s not necessary to attend them all – we encourage the dads and daughters to attend at least ONE together, but even with only one, it’s important to practice at home so that everyone is comfortable on stage!
3. 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.
4. How does it work with Dad’s backstage?
We still reserve 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!
5. 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.
