Any parent would be willing to go to great lengths to help their children achieve their dreams and support them all the way. This includes being there for them on their school performances and even stepping in and dancing with them onstage to overcome stage fright.

During a dance rehearsal at In Motion School of Dance in Hamilton, kids were practicing their ballet moves for their first ever dance recital when two-year-old girl Bella became emotional on stage. Good thing her father, Marc Daniels, always has her back and swooped in to join her and calm her nerves.

In a video, Daniels is seen dancing beside Bella while carrying his baby daughter Suri. “Bella was very emotional and needed hugs from her daddy,” Daniels told the Daily Mail. “Despite having a tantrum, I can tell she wanted to stay on stage and I didn’t want to discourage her before the big performance by making her be the only one to come off”

He managed to calm her down and helped her bring out her inner ballerina. “I walked on holding Suri and stood next to her, trying to help build her confidence – I told her I loved her and that she’s an amazing dancer. I asked if she wanted to dance with daddy and she nodded, so I thought I’d join in,” he said.

Daniels clearly have been rehearsing a lot with Bella as he knows every step of the dance and could easily pass as one of the members of the ballet dancers. His impressive dancing and parenting skills earned praises not just from the teachers but also from people online after the video went viral.
