Dr. Jeffrey Sharp's dance card is filled Saturday night at his 16th and last Cupid's Ball. He is surprised by the appearance of his four older daughters, who later expressed having fond memories of attending the Ball with their dad. While the song "We are Family" blasts over the sound system, the oldest sister, Lauren Bootz, 24, dances with Emily, 12, center. Clockwise from left are Cristian, 20, Dr. Sharp, Lydia, 15, Mrs. Michelle Sharp, and Elena, 18.
It is a tradition at the Cupid's Ball for the 12-year-olds and their fathers to have the floor for one song. It was after that dance, in which Dr. Sharp danced with his youngest daughter, Emma, that the four older Sharp sisters, from left, Cristian, Elena, Lydia and Lauren surprised their dad with an oversized card.
Desmond Carl dances with his daughter, Paisley, 4, at the Ball.
The dance floor was packed with girls who seemed to know the words to all the songs.
