Don’t let the cold weather get you down! Instead, cheer up and stay warm by dancing your heart out at one of the Kroc Center’s winter or spring dances. In February, pick from two dances: the “Out of This World” Father/Daughter Dance or the Valentine’s Day Dance. Then in April, come welcome the warmer weather with our annual Spring Fling dance. Come to one, or come to all! Whichever you choose, we guarantee you’ll have a wonderful time.
The KC Band, a Kroc Center feature since March of 2009, will provide the music for the Valentine's Day Dance and the Spring Fling. The band is made up of local, volunteer musicians and singers, ages high school to adult, who meet weekly to practice and enjoy playing for a variety of community events. They’re a talented group of musicians, under the leadership of our Music Coordinator, Neil Ebert—so at our dances you’re always sure to get the highest quality music for your moves. The KC Band is "not your grandfather's big band." They play a large variety of music—samples from Bruno Mars to Huey Lewis to Johnny B. Good and more.
At our Father/Daughter Dance, young girls and their dads enjoy special one-on-one time, and a live DJ makes the experience extra special for them. The delicious hors d'oeuvres and alcohol-free punch are always popular. Your daughter's smiles will melt your heart, and you'll want to make it an annual tradition!
