Daddy-daughter date

Nothing like dancing... well, being with daddy at the inaugural Warren elementary school event

Men decked out in snazzy attire and young girls all dolled up in their best dresses, and even some princess gowns, lined up outside the Warren Area Student Union on Friday evening for a first-ever event.

Once inside, the attire didn’t matter. The lights were flickering and everyone had on their boogie shoes at the first Daddy-Daughter Dance held by the Warren Area Elementary Center.

Jared Amoroso one-upped some of the other dads as he brought four dates to the special night out. Amoroso even coordinated his pink shirt to match the light green and pink dresses worn by Isabelle, Sophia, Gabriella, and Mackenzie. “They were all excited when they saw I wore the pink shirt,” Amoroso said.

The girls didn’t mind sharing their date. They were looking forward to dancing in a big circle.

Lots of young dancers chose to form dance circles, while some of the dads kept an eye on them from possibly the same wall they lined up along back when they were in school.

There were lots of dads who couldn’t wait to show off their skills with their dates, too. Joe and Reagan McClellan didn’t waste any time hitting the floor. They held hands and stepped back and forth and then Reagan let go and spun around. Just a quick straighten of her skirt by dad and they were right back at it.

McClellan theorized that some dads weren’t quite as eager to get out on the floor because the lights were on. “Some dads are just waiting for the lights to go down,” he said.

Besides, in the event that anyone had two left feet or just wanted something else to do, there were plenty of choices — face painting, photo ops, and just plain kidding around for both daughters and dads.
