Quinceañera: The Father – Daughter Dance
by Sandra Sanchez

The father – daughter dance is the first step in the coming of age for a quince girl. In times past, Mexican girls were not allowed to dance publicly until their coming of age. The quinceañera's father-daughter dance was the literally the young girls first dance. First dances are traditionally a waltz, but it it's becoming popular to choose a more modern form of dance such as a cha-cha, salsa, or merengue. If you choose the traditional waltz here are some popular choices:

  • Quinceañera by Thalia
  • De Nina a Mujer - Julio Iglesias
  • Es Mi Nina Bonita - Tomas De San Julia
  • Tiempo de Vals - Chayanne
  • I Hope You Dance – Lee Ann Womack
  • Because You Loved Me – Celine Dion
  • Denubio Azul

If you feel nervous about dancing with your father, nows the time to prepare. Consider taking a mini dance lessona with your father to get you both prepared for the big day. Dance instruction is a great way to build your confidence and your dads as well. Choose your song and dance style at least 6 months in before your party. Call local dance studios and ask to speak to someone who specializes in quinceaneras.
