Lynn Powelson brought his niece , Abby Thomas , 7 , to the annual Father / Daughter Dance at the Coshocton Elementary School on Saturday , Jan . 6 .
Jen Jones | Beacon
COSHOCTON - Despite the bitter cold , the gym at Coshocton Elementary School was full of dressed up dads , uncles and grandpas with their beautiful “ dates ” for the evening . Excited girls ran around showing off their dresses and giggling over their dad ’ s dance moves .
“ One Snowy Night ” was the theme of the third annual father / daughter dance sponsored by the CHS Cheerleaders . The cheerleaders were in charge of decorating the gym , hallway and cafeteria in snowy beauty and several of the cheerleaders were dressed as characters from the movie “ Frozen ”.
Molly Thomas , varsity cheerleader coach , said the dance was for kindergarten through sixth grade , but if a preschooler wanted to come , they were welcome .
“ This is a little earlier than we usually have the dance , so we weren ’ t sure how many would be here ,” said Thomas . “ I ’ m excited to see so many !” The dance is a fundraiser for the cheerleaders . “ We had to buy new uniforms this year , so the money we earn tonight will go toward replacing those funds and buying new supplies like paint and pompoms ,” said Thomas . “ We just love doing this . It ’ s a special time for dads to spend with their little girls . It doesn ’ t have to be dad that brings the girls – it could be an uncle or grandpa or step-dad . Anyone that the girl wants to bring . Lots of the girls really dress up , but they could wear whatever they are comfortable in .”
Emma Bechtol , 5 , was one of the girls attending the dance with her dad , Brad Bechtol . When asked why she was excited to be at the dance , she said , “ Cause I get to wear a dress and be with my friends .” She said her dad took her to Bob Evans for supper first and that he brought her flowers , too .
Laryssa Cain , Stephanie Allen , Teuana Myers and Paris White were just a few of the cheerleaders who were helping at the dance . As costumed characters , they were very popular with the little girls who all wanted a picture taken with them . Cain said , “ I wish there had been dances like this when I was little .” The other girls agreed . White said she knew her dad would have brought her as a child because he brought her little sister . The girls said it took about two hours to decorate and they were having fun watching all of the girls dance .
Lynn Powelson attended the dance with his niece , Abby Thomas .
“ It ’ s a great way to spend quality time with the children ,” said Powelson .
They attended the dance two years ago and had fun , so they came back again . Abby was running with her friends as Powelson watched .
“ I ’ m not a dancer ,” he said . “ I can handle the slow dances .”
Julie Uhl said that they usually have 150-200 girls at the dance . “ It ’ s a fun time of the year to do something like this . It ’ s fun to see all the girls dressed up . We ’ ll have a few contests , like the coolest dad ’ s dance moves .”
