Event description


About “NOCHE TROPICANA” - Dads University Father Daughter Dance

Noche Tropicana is free of charge to all fathers and daughters wishing to attend. Our message for fathers that evening is "not to teach their daughter how to be a lady", but rather......"teaching their daughter how a lady should be treated".

The environment for the evening is suited for all daughters grades 0-12 and their fathers. The event includes whole group dance activities, bonding time, and personalized activities where dads commit themselves to their daughter’s future success and healthy lifestyle. This is a “dancing under the stars” event, so we highly encourage coats for the evening. We encourage males guardians to attend if the father is not present.

Also at the event

  • Gourmet Trucks (optional purchase)

  • Portraits by Sunset Photography Inc.

  • Fun Photo Booth


The undersigned further expressly agrees that the foregoing waiver and assumption of risks agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the law of the State of California and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.

Acknowledgement of Understanding:

I have read this Waiver and Release of Liability and fully understand its terms, and understand that I am giving up substantial rights, including my right to sue. I acknowledge that I am signing the agreement freely and voluntarily, and intend by my signature to be a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law.

What if I'm a single mother or my daughter's father is not present?

We encourage male guardians, such as grandfathers, uncles, godfathers, or siblings of 18 years or older to accompany them.

Are moms allowed to attend the event?

Sorry! This event is exclusively for fathers. It gives them an opportunity to have a father-daughter date, which is very important and seldomly practiced. We value famiy events, which is why Dads University makes an effort to sponsor activities fit for the entire family.
