About the Dance
The Me and My Guy Dance was originally planned as a domestic violence prevention effort, with the intention of promoting healthy father-daughter relationships. Statistics show that high levels of father involvement are correlated with sociability, confidence and high levels of self-control; which are all characteristics beneficial to one’s ability of making good choices for themselves in regards to future relationships. It has further been proven that children who have involved, positive, male role-models are less likely to act out in school or engage in risky behaviors as adolescents.
Over the years, the event has grown into the largest event for the Monroe STOPe program, presented by the Monroe County Health Council Prevention & Wellness Coalition. In years past, the event has been held at the First United Methodist Church in Sweetwater, TN and at The Eclectic Vibe Centre in Madisonville, TN.
The 2018 Monroe STOPe Dance is themed Under the Big Top at Tsali Notch and will encompass CARNIVAL fun in addition to the dance itself!
