The importance of the role a father plays in the life of his daughter is huge and even backed up by science. Some of the most recent research has found that young girls who have warm, close relationships with their dads are better able to handle everyday stress, are less prone to depression and anxiety, and are better able to talk about their feelings. And of course, there’s dancing! A girl’s first dance partner is very often her father. So, in honor of Father’s Day 2019, Fred Astaire Dance Studios would like to take a look at some of our favorite daddy-daughter dances.
DAD TEACHES DAUGHTER TO TANGO
Admittedly, most dads are going to start out with the old standard “sway side to side” when they first teach their daughters to dance, but not this guy! Looks like he was going for a good old-fashioned tango.
DAUGHTER TEACHES DAD A NEW ROUTINE
Sometimes dads are willing to be the students instead of the teachers, as in the case of this dad who patiently learned his daughter’s cheer routine. Not too bad!
FATHER-DAUGHTER WEDDING DANCE
You could spend hours on YouTube watching videos of new brides dancing with their fathers. If you do, you’ll probably notice a trend emerging. It seems more and more fathers and daughters are going for full-blown, choreographed show-stoppers.
KEEPING IT TRADITIONAL
Still, some families choose to go the traditional route and keep it clean and classy, like this father and daughter who decided to do a foxtrot to a Sinatra tune. No matter which way you want to go, your local Fred Astaire Dance Studios can provide you with a customized Wedding Dance Instruction Program to help create a dance that’s totally YOU!
LET’S DON’T FORGET THE GRANDFATHERS!
Grandfathers like to get in on the get down action too! This video of 72-year-old Henry dancing with his 6-year-old granddaughter has gone viral. It’s just a normal day in the life according to the girl’s mother. She says her daughter loves to dance with her Poppy.
