LACONIA — This past Saturday evening, lovely ladies from pre-school through high school arrived at Laconia Christian Academy on the arms of their dads for a very memorable father-daughter dance.
From 6:30 til 8:30 p.m. the girls and their fathers waltzed, swung and boogied to music new and old. The gym was decorated festively with balloons, flowers, ribbons, and gossamer, creating a dreamlike atmosphere. The young ladies were adorned in their best dresses, new hairdos, and freshly painted nails.
The evening was emceed by local DJ Carroll Brown a.k.a. "Solitary Man", well known for his musical and singing talents. He kept everyone on their feet with a wonderful assortment of dance choices, fun classics like the "Hokie Pokie" and the "Chicken Dance", as well as a limbo contest.
Pete and Kristin Pelletier of Simpell Photography took posed photos and candids of everyone throughout the evening. A professional photo CD will be made available at a later date for the girls and their families.
Attendees were treated to waltz lessons by a friend of the school, Jane Jepsen. She led many dancers through several basic and intermediate steps. What fun to see the dads trying to not step on their daughters toes while keeping up with the tempo.
Members of the LCA "PAC" committee helped with organizing, decorating and making this a memorable night for the girls. Renaissance Florals of Bristol donated three beautiful arrangements and Prescott's Florist of Laconia donated a $20 gift card.
