Give Dad a Chance on His Dance!

Since Father’s Day is right around the corner, I thought I would talk with you about those wonderfully great, incredibly fun and just down right doable Father Daughter Dances.

Sure – you’ve got to concentrate on your first dance…

But while you’re at it why not throw in a little time with your dad to get him up to speed for the Father/Daughter dance?

Some dads “aren’t so sure” about the Father Daughter dance in the first place so why not be the first to mention the topic and suggest some real one-on-one time to get you both feeling ready and able to ace that dance?


A couple of questions to consider:

Is he a romantic? Will he shed more than a tear or two on your big day as he gives you away?

Is he a real ham – a performer with a capital “P”?  Should you really do it up big and let him incorporate that famous dad move you know and “love” so well?

Is he a bit on the introverted side?  Perhaps he has thought of hiring that Hollywood look-alike to step up to the plate and dance his part?


Whatever your dad is like we can come up with a dance that’s just right.

I’ve had dads use popular songs, country songs, old favorites from their youth and one dad even used a song his daughter had recorded that she sang for him.  (Now that’s just adorable!)

I can keep it simple with some lead and follow techniques and just a few twirls and moves around the dance floor.

Or we can go for it and do a whole routine where dad shines at his best moves; with or without that famous chicken dance or Disco Dan footwork he’s been known to do on occasion!

Whatever your dad wants, and you agree he can have, haha, we’ll do and have a good time in the process.

So don’t be afraid to get out there with your dad…  Give dad a chance on his dance and you may just think that part of your reception video was one of the most memorable!
