- Photos (5)
Dads and daughters dressed up in their best clothes Saturday in Schaumburg for a night they'll never forget.
They heated up the dance floor to such classics as the "Chicken Dance," "The Fox" and "Y.M.C.A." at the Dad and Daughter Under the Sea Date Night dance at the Community Recreation Center.
For most of the more modern dances, daughters guided their dads.
"I learned a few dances, but it was also fun to teaching them a few dances they didn't know such as the twist," said Rob Kaergard of Schaumburg after dancing with his two daughters Brooke, 7, and Kira, 5.
More than 200 attended the annual event, which included dinner and cake for dessert.
DJ Wade Ratner with Aaron Entertainment in Schaumburg didn't waste any time getting the attendees on the dance floor by starting out with a hula-hoop contest for the daughters with Gracie Carey, 8, of Schaumburg, and several daughters winning prizes.
"The chicken dance really gets them going," Ratner said.
The event was staffed by 14 volunteers and three park district employees including Pam Gauper, party coordinator for the park district, who was taking portraits of the dads and daughters with an under the sea backdrop. Daughters made bracelets at a craft table that was draped with colorful beads and string.
Daughters love to dance with their dads said George Grey, Bock Neighborhood Center manger, and program/event supervisor.
"We also hold a mom and son dance, but the boys just want to run around and aren't so anxious to dance with their moms," Grey said.
