The special bond between a father and daughter was celebrated at the 11th Annual Daddy Daughter Dance.

800 dads and daughters packed the gym at North Division High School for an evening of dining, music, dancing, and the sharing of a special time.

The Daddy Daughter Dance was an annual event put on by the Milwaukee Recreation Department in partnership with the Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiative and the Social Development Commission.

One father Rodney Banks who has attended previous dances and attended this one with his six-year old daughter Olivia said the night was a chance to show his daughter how women should be treated.

He added that they both had a great time and that Olivia was already looking forward to coming back at next year’s Daddy Daughter Dance.
