Mother Daughter Songs

After numerous requests for Mother Daughter songs for anything from a Mother/Daughter recital dance, to a special solo and group dance, to a tribute to Dance Moms, here are a few of our favorites.  They cover the range of sweet and sad, to silly.



I can so relate to this quote – both as a daughter and a mother!

I love my mother for all the times she said  absolutely nothing. . . . Thinking back on it all, it must have been the most  difficult part of mothering she ever had to do: knowing the  outcome, yet feeling she had no right to keep me from charting my own path. I  thank her for all her virtues, but mostly for never once having said, “I told  you so.”    

-Erma Bombeck

Recital Theme:  We Are Family
