Mis Quince is a Spanish tradition to celebrate a 15 year old girl, and no celebration would be complete without music. Singing, dancing and having a great time with family and friends is what most celebrations are supposed to be like. Therefore, finding the right melodies and tunes for those special events is very important. From rock and country to jazz and blues, getting together with friends and celebrating great times or special events will make your event very popular. The best thing about Mis Quince is that the young lady gets to feel like a princess for a day. She wears a beautiful gown, and the party supplies are nothing short of elaborate. The music should also make her feel special, and allow her to have fun with her friends.

The traditional first dance is between the father and daughter. Some song ideas include:
This I promise you- By: NSYNC
My Little Girl- By: Tim McGraw
My Girl- By: The Temptations
Butterfly Kisses- By: Bob Carlisle
These make some great father and daughter dance songs, but if there is one that is more special to you, use that one.

After the father and daughter dance, it is time to pick out songs for everyone to dance to. Here are some ideas:
Fifteen- Taylor Swift
Hero- Mariah Carey
I Donít Want To Miss A Thing- Aerosmith
Pump It- Black Eyed Peas
Iím Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman- Britney Spears
These songs are just the beginning of a great playlist. Let the birthday girl help choose the songs and before long there will be a long enough playlist for the party that all of the guests will participate on the dance floor. Creative tip: Make sure to put a stamp on all invitations that are to be mailed in a timely fashion.
