You can choose to be in the Rumson or the Fair Haven shows. Dancers must be three years of age by January 1st in order to participate in Daddy Daughter and five to participate in Mommy Daughter.
For the recital, dancers will need a white dress and the dads will need a dark suit. Communion, flower girl, or Confirmation dresses are perfect. Attire for Mommy Daughter is TBD. Please read the following information very carefully before committing to the Daddy/Daughter Dance or the Mommy Daughter dance.

- The rehearsal schedule is subject to change. We try our hardest not to change the rehearsal schedule, but this is “showbiz” and circumstances beyond our control frequently cause schedule changes.
- We will communicate with Daddy/Daughter Mommy/Daughter participants via email only. If you do not have email or if you never check your email, please do not register for the Daddy/Daughter Mommy/Daughter dance. You are required to check your email weekly when you are a Daddy/Daughter Mommy/Daughter participant.
- Dance is difficult. It is a “team sport”. Everybody on stage depends on everyone else to put on a great show. Remember, the Daddy/Daughter Mommy/Daughter dance is an experience that will last a lifetime. Spending time at rehearsal and working through difficult situations with your daughter is as significant as performing the actual dance.
- All rehearsals are “Closed Rehearsals”, meaning friends and family may not watch the daddy daughter rehearsals.
All four rehearsals are required to learn the dance. Unfortunately, we are unable to alter the rehearsal schedule to accommodate individual travel plans, illness, vacation etc.
