Parent Dances

Over the years, I've learned that parent/child dances are as individual and personal as the people themselves.

However, if you're stuck for ideas, please take a look at the following list.

You'll find some of the most appropriate and popular songs available today. Remember, when it comes to your dance with your parent or sibling or other significant person, there is no right or wrong. There are only songs that mean something special to you...
