As of August 2018, we don’t have a director for Drama Club so we do not anticipate we will be able to bring this Program to our students in the 2018-19 school year.

15th Annual Carmel Del Mar Elementary Dragon Ball

A dance for our daughters

Sunday, April 29, 2018

You are invited to attend the 15th Annual Carmel Del Mar Dragon Ball, a dance for our daughters.  The dance will be held on Sunday April 29, 2018.  

If you have attended this fantastic event in the past, then we probably do not need to remind you what a rewarding and fun event this is, both for daughters and fathers. For the “first timers”, you will experience a sophisticated and fun event that gives your daughters the opportunity to dress up, have a formal dinner-dance with their dads, and make memories to last a lifetime. The girls that are regular attendees of the dance will tell you what an awesome event it is, how much they love getting ready for the dance (dressing up, make-up, nails and hair) and what a great bonding experience it is.

And in truth, they might also mention how embarrassing it is to see their dads trying to hula-hoop or do the Macarena.

The Dragon Ball is organized by the Carmel Del Mar Dad’s Club. Proceeds from the event provide much-needed support for various school programs at CDM.

  • Reception:     3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
  • Dancing/games: 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m
