I am doing my father-daughter dance with my grandfather, but that is due to my father passing away a couple of years ago. If he were around, I’m not entirely sure I would have done it with him. I grew up in very similar circumstances. I say, as long as you don’t call it the “father-daughter dance” it should be okay. 

I mean, missing out on most of your life isn’t really just a “human mistake”. You already said that’s what you want to do, and your relationship with your grandfather is clearly a cherished one. I would dance with your grandfather – he earned the spot. You can dance with your dad at other times in the night.

However, if you’re really torn, why not split the dance? Dance the first part with one, then have him hand you off to the other to finish the dance.

I’m not even doing the father/daughter dance, but I suggest you do your dance with your grandfather. It seems like your grandfather is closer to you and that you have more memories with him. If you dad wanted the father/daughter dance than he should have contacted you a long time ago.
