Second Dads and Daughters Ball at the Brooklyn Children’s Museum
Dads had so much of a blast with their daughters at the second-annual Dads and Daughters Ball that neighborhood moms were feeling like they weren’t invited to the party.
Still, last week’s party of about 100 guests was a big success, with dancing — including the much heralded-but-often-embrassing dad dance-off — craft-making, and a surprise appearance by Curious George.
It is all an important way for fathers to bond with their young daughters.
“It establishes a line of communication. It just makes [a relationship] bigger and broader and establishes memories for kids,” said Newsome, who said the event is geared towards 2- to 6 year olds and their parents. She also said the ball is part of the small Crown Heights museum’s, which hosts about 200,000 visitors a year, kid-centric programming.
“Our demographics are changing, but we cater to the children,” said Newsome. “Our majority population will always be children.”
