The annual Daddy daughter dance put on by Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation is such a hit that all tickets were sold out by the Friday morning before the dance. “Two hundred tickets were sold to 455 people,” said Parks and Rec Executive Director Amanda Gerhardt.
The dance was held last Saturday, February 2, at Cedar Springs Middle School.
Besides dancing, Gerhardt said they drank punch, ate mini éclairs, petit fours, cookies and candy. Each family had a picture taken and girls were able to make key chains at a craft table with their dads. They could also buy teddy bears from Noah’s Animal Workshop.
“We had a great time and look forward to another fun year as we celebrate the 10th annual on Feb 1, 2014,” commented Gerhardt.

The bond between a dad and his daughter is pretty special, and over hundreds of dads and daughters got to experience that Saturday night, February 4, at Cedar Springs Middle School.
The 8th annual Daddy Daughter Dance, put on by Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation, keeps getting bigger every year, and this year’s dance was no exception. A little over 300 attended last year’s dance, and this year’s dance had a record 430 dads and daughters. The dance, held the first Saturday in February, is for girls ages 3 through early teens and their dad, grandpa, uncle, or other father figure.
Dads and daughters danced to the music of a daddy-daughter DJ team, and dances included the cha-cha slide, the hokey pokey, the locomotion, Footloose, the chicken dance, and a slow one—Butterfly Kisses.
The girls were also able to purchase and make stuffed animals with special clothing, even a Daddy Daughter Dance t-shirt.
“It was a special night that will create memories for all that attended,” said Amanda Gerhardt, organizer and Director of Parks and Rec.

Get ready to create special memories. Saturday, February 5, is the 7th Annual Daddy Daughter Dance put on by the Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation Department. This event has grown every year and is one of the most special moments of the year for many young girls in the Cedar Springs area. The dance is for girls of age 3 through the early teen years and the male role model in their lives. We understand that not every young lady has a father in their life, but they have a male that they look up to and that is special to them. That person may be an uncle, grandfather, older brother, or somone else. We hope that this experience is available for any young lady regardless of their personal circumstances. The dance can be attended by anyone, not just residents of Cedar Springs. It is important that all young ladies can have a night of fun and a chance to make memories that last a lifetime.
The dance is hosted by a father and daughter DJ service, Diverse Sounds, and has punch and snacks for the attendees as well. The doors will open for the event at 6:30 pm at the Cedar Springs Middle School and the dance will kick off at 7 pm. There is a craft project for each girl to work on with their date while at the dance and 5×7 photos will be taken of each couple and provided after February 14th, this is all included in the ticket prices. Noah’s Animal Workshop will be at the dance offering special stuffed animals to commemorate the night as well for an additional fee.
The event will take place at the Cedar Springs Middle School. Tickets are on sale now during normal daytime office hours at Hilltop and at the Middle School on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6-9pm. Tickets in advance are $15 for two people, or $18 for three, or $20 for a group of four or more. Tickets can be purchased at the door for an additional fee, $20 for two people, or $25 for three or more.
