Time to sign up for daddy-daughter dances

Posted December 29, 2011

If 2012 is anything like last year, I'll be updating this post several times. So this is the beginning.

Now is the time to start signing up for local daddy-daughter dances. These very popular events often sell out, so it's best to get your tickets as soon as possible.

Here is information for three of them:

Cary's annual daddy-daughter dance will be offered on two dates this year because of the demand. Girls ages 4 to 12 and their fathers may choose between Friday, Feb. 3, or Saturday, Feb. 4. The dance will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Cary Senior Center, 120 Maury O'Dell Place in Bond Park. Pre-registration is required. Both fathers and daughters must be registered. The fee for either night is $17 per person for Cary residents and $22 per person for non-residents. For more information, click here or call 919-462-3970.

Raleigh's Laurel Hills Community Center hosts a night of dancing, refreshments and entertainment for dads and their daughters from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Feb. 10. It's for all ages. Tickets are $15 per person for Raleigh residents and $27 for non-residents. Space is very limited. Pre-registration is required. Call 919-420-2383.

The Triangle Father Daughter Dance is 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., Feb. 4, at Marbles Kids Museum in downtown Raleigh. Tickets are $40 for a dad and his daughter, ages 2 and up. The annual dance also provides an opportunity for girls without active fathers in their lives to be a part of the event.

    Are any of these those creepy "purity dances"?

  • shall6 Dec 30, 2011

    Those would be at the North Hills Chick-fil-A, but I know others will have something similar ...

    I take that back. I just learned that local Chick-fil-As will have a mom/son date night in May.

    A dad-daughter date night is Feb. 6. A dad-son night is in August.

    @tierneemalinadeveaux ... If you'll follow the link to the dance's website, you'll find additional ticket prices ... $55 for dad plus two daughters, $70 for dad plus three daughters ...

    Daddy-daughter events such as these are a tradition for some families. I haven't heard of any mom/son dances in the area.
