What if my daughter was 12 last year and didn't get to go?

If your daughter would have “aged out” last year, but still wants to attend, we encourage you to purchase a ticket and make for a special evening of celebration!

What if I joined the waitlist? Will I get a ticket?

Our waitlist capacity is limited. Those who submitted their names for the waitlist will be contacted if a ticket becomes available. Please note, being on the waitlist does not guarantee a ticket to the dance.

What if a girl’s father can’t bring her?

Her Knight is open to stepfathers, grandfathers, uncles, godfathers or other male role models who fulfill the role of ‘knight’ to a little girl.

What about inclement weather?

Her Knight is a “rain or shine” (or snow in some cases!) event. There is no make up date in the event of inclement weather.

What is the dress code?

There is no official dress code. We want everyone to be comfortable. However, many girls enjoy wearing party dresses to the event. The attire for fathers/knights ranges from khakis and dress shirts to suits and even a few tuxedos and military uniforms. Complimentary dresses are available for any girl with a financial need. Please contact us for more information.

I don't see the Salon Package option. Is that available?

Her Knight is not offering the salon package for sale in conjunction with ticket sales for 2023. However, knights who wish to book a salon experience for their princess may contact Summit Salon Academy directly at 859-226-5531.

Can mom or family members come to take photos?

This night is dedicated to our fathers/knights and their girls, therefore we keep this special time reserved only for them. We have hired multiple professional photographers to be at our event to take both posed and candid photographs from the evening so you won’t miss a thing. Just be sure your knights and daughters know to smile when the camera comes around! Our knights are also welcome to bring their own cameras to take pictures at the event.

Who holds the event? Who does it benefit?

Her Knight Dance, Inc. is an independent, 501(c)3 non-profit organization which is comprised entirely of unpaid volunteers. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales benefit non-profit, charitable organizations that support and encourage fathers and/or daughters. Since our inception in 2011, Her Knight has given more than $160,000 in charitable donations to deserving community organizations.

How do I nominate someone for a scholarship ticket to the dance?

Each year, Her Knight dedicates 10% of tickets sold to scholarship recipients. Scholarships are distributed to qualified nominees. Nominations for the 2023 dance will open in November 2022.

What type of food is served? What should I do if my child has food allergies?

Chick-fil-A generously donates the food for our guests. The menu includes a variety of Chick-fil-A favorites, including Chick-fil-A nuggets, sandwiches, fruit, waffle chips and dessert items. Many families enjoy going to a restaurant before the event to make the evening even more special. However, everyone is welcome to eat at the event.

Please review Chick-fil-A’s Allergen Information for more details – https://www.chick-fil-a.com/nutrition-allergens. If your child is allergic to the food offered, it may be more convenient for you to eat before or after the event. We will make every effort to accommodate special requests due to food allergies. Please contact us with special requests.

What is the Her Knight Scholarship Closet?

Her Knight is proud to announce our scholarship closet partnership with Kid to Kid here in Lexington, KY! As a part of our annual dance scholarship effort, Her Knight provides dance attire to girls with demonstrated need.

If you have new or like-new items you’d like to donate to Kid to Kid, a credit will be applied to our Her Knight account. Those who require attire for the dance will be able to choose from their in-store inventory, which is paid for through the Her Knight store credit. For more information or to donate, please contact us.

What is a Partner vs. a Sponsor?

Sponsors are businesses/individuals who make cash/in-kind donations to support the event.

Mission Partners (or Partners) are our community non-profit organizations who receive charitable donations from Her Knight via an application process to further impact fathers/daughters in our community.

love notes
  • The first year my daughter and I attended was 5 months after my divorce from her mother. My daughter took that pretty hard (and as expected was pretty sad.) I took her to get hair and nails done and she wasn’t all that excited. We got dressed and got to the dance and she was still not very excited. Once we got inside, all the volunteers helped to make it special and she started to smile. By the end of that night she was having the time of her life. She gave me a big hug that night before bed and told me how much she appreciated me taking her. This dance reminded her that daddy loves her regardless of what has happened and that I’ll always be there for her. I can’t her Knight dance enough for the memories, and for helping to strengthen our relationship.

  • The most memorable part of the dance is so awkward. But, they give you time to tell your daughter how you feel about them. This time is precious, and they soak it up. I have told my daughters throughout their life how much I love them, but being on a dance floor and having that one-on-one time, and then telling them how you feel drives a deeper bond.
