Week of June 14-18, 2021
Father's Day Week
Did you know that the nation’s first Father’s Day was celebrated in Spokane, Washington? Sonora Smart Dodd, one of six children raised by a widower, attempted to establish an official equivalent to Mother’s Day for male parents.
She found success by traveling to local churches, the YMCA, local shopkeepers, and government officials to raise awareness for her idea, and on June 19, 1910 the holiday was recognized by the state of Washington!
This week, ABTKids Daily proudly celebrates all of the amazing fathers in ABT’s expansive family, including the pioneer that is often referred to as the “Father of Classical Ballet”!
Join us for a fun-filled week of interviews, challenges, and activities, and get inspired to honor the very special fathers in your life!
