COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — After 25 years, this is the final year for A Daughter’s Heart Dance. Founder Renee Behr stopped by FOX21 to talk about the importance of the event and why, after so many years, it is coming to an end.

A Daughter’s Heart Dance was created in 1997 when Behr decided to create a space for her daughter and her dad. Since then, the event has grown every year with daughters and dads enjoying a night created just for them.

But why is the event ending?

“It’s time for another dad or mother or someone to create this space in the world that we live in today,” Behr explained. “It has been such a blessing, but seasons change.”

With the event’s ending in mind, this year’s dance will be extra special. You can find the event’s details below.
