It was masquerade time at the annual Lincoln Elementary School Daddy/Daughter dance on Friday, March 12.
Each year the dance has a theme that allows dads and their daughters to not only show their dancing talents but stretch their imaginations as well. Themes have been as varied as a western barbeque to a land of fairy princesses – all of which provide the girls and their very patient daddies with a chance to bond over great food and fun music.
This year the theme was a masquerade ball. The girls hid, and giggled, behind colorful masks as they took to the dance floor. The dance location changed this year from the school’s auditorium to the La Crescenta Presbyterian Church.
The dance is sponsored by the foundation but it is not a fundraising event. Foundation representatives said they hold the dance not to raise money but to allow the girls and their dads to have a special evening together, an evening when little girls still think their daddy is the handsomest and smartest man. Soon they will be teenagers and dad will no longer be the leading man in their life but that guy who interrogates the boys brought home and paces the floor while they are on their date.
