Q: Can I fake the waltz for the father/daughter dance?

A: Yes, and it's easy: Do the box step! What's more, there are some great popular songs to waltz to, like "Moon River," "Sunrise, Sunset," "Daddy's Little Girl," "Three Times a Lady" and "Open Arms." Carrie Babcock, an instructor at The Fred Astaire Dance Studio, in Montclair, NJ, suggests that these are all easy to move to for a father/daughter dance.
