Daddy Joins Tiny Ballerina Daughter on Stage at Concert To Help Her with Routine

Every dad is different. From family to family, each dad’s fathering style varies greatly. But one thing remains consistent — passionate and dedicated dads will do anything for their daughters.

No dad wants to see his little girl fail at something. Good dads want their daughters to be happy, confident and successful in their endeavors.

This was especially evident back in December when Acers Gill, a father from Lexington, Kentucky, mimicked his 2-year-old daughter’s ballet routine from backstage so that she would remember her moves.

Jennifer Michelle Gaines, a member of the audience at the recital, captured the moment on video for all to see:

What a sweet moment!

Similarly, In Motion School of Dance, located in Bermuda, posted a Facebook video of a bold dance dad at one of their dress rehearsals.

This dad stands front-and-center on stage alongside his young daughter, guiding her in each plie and releve. But this time, it was slightly different:

Not only did the devoted dad turn a blind eye to any embarrassment this might cause him, but he also did it all with his other baby daughter tucked underneath his arm.

So adorable.

As he goes through the routine, he carefully maps out each leg kick and toe-touch for his young daughter, which she eagerly and excitedly imitates. As the routine continues, his daughter seemingly becomes more shy and confused.

But worry not, because he eventually takes her hand to guide her. She briskly takes her dad’s hand and gains her confidence!

Meanwhile, his baby daughter contentedly bounces around happily in his arms.

In Motion School of Dance posted the charming video on Facebook with the caption, “In Motion Dads are the best Sometimes, you simply need your dad on stage to help bring out your inner ballerina!”

I think we can say the same regarding the rest of life’s opportunities — sometimes dads are just the best people to bring out our inner confidence and strength.

And sometimes they’re the best people to bring out our inspired tears and joyful laughs, too.
