One of my favorite parts of quinceañera is the father/daughter dance. I love the tradition of having the proud papa take his hija's hand and inviting her to share a waltz, symbolizing his recognition that she is now a lady. This could bring some happy tears to your guests--I know my mom cried during mine! So take the time to plan out this dance in great detail. You'll remember it forever. Here are some tips for making it memorable:
What might even be more important than your dance steps, chicas, is the song you choose. Make sure to pick one that you love! Some good ones are "Butterfly Kisses" by Bob Carlisle, "Have I Told You Lately" by Rod Stewart, "My Father's Eyes" by Amy Grant, and "You're My Hero" by Teresa James. Check out other songs on our playlist here.
I love this video on YouTube, below. The birthday girl chose "When You Look Me in the Eyes" by the Jonas Brothers, and says the song choice is what really made such a special moment even better. She and her father look well-rehearsed and are entertaining. Most importantly, they look like they are enjoying themselves. It's a big night for both of you.
