Father-Daughter Dance

The Gordon Barbour Child Care Program began holding the annual Father-Daughter Dance in 2004 and now partners with the Orange County Youth Council to host this special event. In general, this dance is held annually on the Saturday after Valentine’s Day in the cafeteria at Orange County High School (In the event Valentine’s Day falls on a Saturday, the dance is held the following Saturday, February 21st.). Girls in the grades K-8 can come and enjoy an evening with dad, or other special male in her life. We have had dads, brothers, grandfathers, uncles, etc. attend with the young ladies and they have had a blast! Attire for past events ranged from casual to formal, with some men showing up in full dress military uniform and tuxedos. We ask you to wear whatever makes you comfortable to make the night special for you and your little girl(s).

Each year, the dance attendance has grown forcing the Office on Youth to split the dance into two (2) sessions, one (1) for K-3rd grade and a later dance for 4th-8th grade. This split has worked very well and attendance continues to grow each year.

Admission Information
Admission to the dance is $15.00 in advance and $20.00 at the door (please check flyer for specific dates). The admission price covers entrance for the young lady (or ladies if there is more than one young lady in the family), her date, and light refreshments. In the event that there are two girls in the family that fall into the two different age brackets for the dances, the family has the option to attend one dance all together for the price of one ticket, or they may attend the individual dances with each girl separately for the price of one ticket. A photographer is also on-site to capture the event; however, they do charge their own fees. In addition, glow bracelets or necklaces and/or stuffed animals are for sale as they are very popular with the girls.

13th Annual Father-Daughter Dance
The date of the 2017 Father-Daughter Dance will be posted after the first of the year.
