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.
This year, the event will be at the breathtaking Tsali Notch Vineyard in Madisonville, on December 2, 2017 from 5-7pm. We are thrilled about the venue, and as always we're excited to be able to offer engaging activities like these to our community. We hope you'll make plans to be there and that you'll help us spread the word to ensure this years' dance is as successful as possible!
