For some daughters dancing during the March 1st Daddy Daughter Dance at Bowman Middle School, they kept going while the Dads needed breaks.
Others had a chance to teach their fathers some of the latest dance moves popular among the Pre-K to third grade students.
The annual event drew fathers and daughters from Bowman, Rhame and surrounding communities for a chance to dress up and dance together for several hours.
For Jason Ruggles of Bowman, it was a chance to hit the dance floor with his daughter Lily. “It has been very cool,” he said, as he took a brief break. “It’s been many years,” he added as his daughter coaxed him back on the dance floor.
Chad Erickson and his daughter, Claire, came down from Amidon for the event, with the eight-year-old getting a lift about the dance floor in addition to a chance to twirl and spin to the music.
To John Wegner of Bowman, the fun was keeping up with his six-year-old daughter, Karsyn, while other Dads retired to the sidelines.
The event also had snacks for the daughters to keep their energy levels up, along with prizes that were handed out during some of the breaks between the songs.
