Valentine's Day Daddy-Daughter Dances in Southeast Michigan

A daughter’s first love is usually her dad, and dads tend to be just as enamored with their little girls. Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity for dads and daughters to celebrate that unique bond – and this year, southeast Michigan is revving up for the big day with some massive celebrations. Dads, dress in your best, and bring your princess, or princesses, out for a night of food, fun and frolic at one of these daddy-daughter dances in Macomb, Oakland, Wayne and Washtenaw counties.

Missing a dad or a daughter in this scenario? In most cases, caring uncles, grandpas, cousins or brothers are invited to accompany their loved instead, and there are options for mother-and-son duos, as well as shindigs for the entire family, too. Search the list, and find a dance that fits your needs. Note: many of these dances require advance registration, and spots can sell out fast. Be sure to get your tickets early.
