Enchanted Snow Ball Transports Guests To Another World

The PA teacher liaison Kayla Campbell gathered with some of her students at the dance.

The CTA auditorium was transformed into a magical ice castle with lights, snowflakes, glitter bows, balloon columns, and white linen tables for the Annual Daddy Daughter Dance in February. The young ladies were dressed elegantly as they stood with their Prince Charming and waited for the doors to open. The doors opened to invite them in, and their eyes were filled with wonder! The smiles showed amazement at the transformation of the venue. Kings and their princesses danced and feasted on wonderful hors d’oeuvres and punch. Each girl was given a snowflake necklace to commemorate the evening. It was a beautiful event that was possible only with the help of the many volunteers who helped plan, decorate, set up, tear down, and serve onsite during the event. Thank you to all who volunteered and for all those who attended!

On February 11, CTA held its annual Daddy Daughter Dance, which was a huge success. The event has grown every year, as more and more daughters and their favorite men come to this event for fun, food, and DANCING!!! This year, “A Mad Hatter Tea Party” was the crazy theme. Each girl was given pearls, a teacup to decorate, and a special treat as she walked into the wacky CTA cafeteria! Also, every girl got on her feet and moved to the funky beats of the D.J.! A couple families pulled out all the stops to come in Mad Hatter/Alice in Wonderland attire and got really creative with their costumes! Donated desserts filled the room for a full dessert bar for the ladies and their dates to enjoy. Our staff and families went above and beyond to make this event a CTA favorite!

Mother Son Game Night was a hit!

Mother Son Game Night was a hit!

Daddy Daughter Dance is always a favorite.

Daddy Daughter Dance is always a favorite.

April and May were very busy months for the students at CTA’s elementary. We had two wonderful events occur during these months: the Daddy Daughter Luau and the Mother Son Game Night.

The Daddy Daughter Dance is one of our favorite events at CTA! At the beginning of every year, many, many questions are asked about the theme of the current year’s Daddy Daughter Dance. This year’s theme was that of a Luau, complete with lots of flowery leis and even a tiki hut!

Like every year, the girls enjoyed the time spent dancing, munching on yummy desserts provided by our families, and sipping on this year’s delicious smoothies made by two amazing CTA high school students: Hunter George and Kaleigh Keech. The greatest part of the evening occurred when all the dads joined their daughters out on the dance floor. The girls’ faces lit up with excitement to be dancing alongside their favorite guys.

Mother Son Game Night was a HIT! Moms and sons joined CTA staff members in playing every game known to man. You could hear the laughter coming from the Scattergories table, guesses being shouted out at the Pictionary station, and you could even feel the floor move in the Twister and Just Dance rooms. Seeing all of the smiling faces makes events like this a fantastic time for everyone!

The 2014-2015 school year is coming to a close and what a great year it has been for CTA’s elementary! Thank you to students, families, teachers, and administrators for making 2014-2015 one for the books!

On April 24th the CTA Elementary hosted a masquerade themed daddy daughter dance.  As the girls walked in with their Dads their faces light up as they saw the beautiful decorated dance.  Purple, green and gold streamers surrounded the dance floor while great center pieces were on each table.  At the entrance the girls were greeted with a wide variety of mask to adorn their face.  The girls came in their finest dresses while their Dad’s came in handsome suits and dress clothes to escort their daughters to the dance.  There were many activities for the girls to do including decorating pictures, going to take a picture at the photo area, enjoying a delicious dessert and most importantly dancing the night away with their Dads.  There were lots of smiles, laughing and dancing by all who came.

N-Daddy-daughter-dance1N-Daddy-daughter-dance2It may have been postponed for a month due to inclement weather, but the annual Daddy daughter dance put on by Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation was a night to remember for the nearly 500 people in attendance last Saturday, March 1.

Originally scheduled for February 1, the dance took place at Cedar Springs Middle School, and was open to girls and a special man in their life, whether a dad, grandpa, uncle, brother, or other male figure.

N-Daddy-daughter-dance3They danced to the Cupid Shuffle, the Hokey Pokey, the Chicken Dance, the Macarena and much more.

The girls made necklaces to take home and door prizes were given away. Photos of the dads and daughters were also taken.

Check out videos of the event on YouTube and photos on Google + and the Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation Facebook.

Daddy-daughter dance February 1

Buy tickets now—none available at the door


On Saturday, February 1, there will be a night to remember for 200 families. The 10th Annual Daddy Daughter Dance will be put on by the Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation Department at Cedar Springs Middle School. 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. They can be the one that attends and helps create memories. The dance can be attended by anyone, not just residents of Cedar Springs. It is important that young ladies can have a night of fun and a chance to make memories that will last them 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 p.m. at the Cedar Springs Middle School and the dance will kick off at 7 p.m. Included in the ticket price is a craft project for each girl to work on with their date while at the dance, and 5×7 photos that will be taken of each couple and provided after February 14. Noah’s Animal Workshop will be at the dance offering special stuffed animals to commemorate the night for an additional fee.

Tickets are on sale now during daytime office hours at Hilltop (8 a.m.-4 p.m.)  and at the Middle School on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6-9 p.m.  There is only room for 200 families and half of those are already reserved, so do not wait until the last minute. Tickets in advance are $15 for two people, or $20 for three, or $25 for a group of four or more.  There will not be any tickets available at the door.

For more information call 696-7320 or email director@csaparksandrec.com. We are also on Facebook and have a new website www.csaparksandrec.com, with mobile application and text alert options.

Daddy daughter dance a sell-out


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.

Daddy daughter dance a big hit

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.
