Linked with Love: Father Daughter Dance & More

My dad and I have always shared a love of dancing. When I was fifteen, he enrolled me in the same dance school that he had attended as a teenager some forty years before. My brother went there, too! So needless to day, we weren’t worried about the dancing.

It took a bit longer to “nail” our song, though. I wanted it to be my dad’s pick and he took his sweet time making a decision. But in the end it was worth it, because he came up with an idea that truly reflects our love of dance and music: He picked two songs!


We started off waltzing to a traditional rendition of Blue Danube by Strauss…


…and mid-way through the Blue Danube, our DJ, Marek, segued us into a track from Jive Bunny, a favorite rock’n'roll compilation CD of mine and my dad’s. I’ve been rocking to that CD since I was a toddler!



You can really see how much my dad loves to rock it on the dance floor. Dancing is one of the things my parents bonded over when they were younger.

You can see the transition live in this video:

As we started jiving across the dance floor, our DJ invited the bridal party members and other guests to join us on the dance floor

That’s the look one gets as one’s veil gets tangled in a twirl


Our Pastor W joined us on the dance floor, too!

We kept the dance floor open for several songs before we sat down for the speech/food part of the evening.

Are you having a father-daughter dance, and how did you pick your song? Was it emotional for you?

    Our father-daughter dance was such a tear-jerker! Not a dry eye in the house! Though we did not have your dance skills ;)

    @Mrs. Waterfall: Our dance wasn’t emotional (obviously you knew that from the video).. we just had too much fun. :)
