    You Have To See This Heroic Dad Doing Ballet On Stage To Calm His Daughter’s Nerves

    With a baby in his arms, no less!

    In a video posted by In Motion School of Dance in Hamilton, Bermuda, we got to witness the magic of heroic parenting when Marc Daniels took the stage to help his daughter overcome stage fright during a ballet recital.

    Daniels took the stage while holding his baby daughter Suri when his daughter Bella was overcome with nerves and emotion during a dress rehearsal for her first ever ballet recital.

    He told the Daily Mail, "Bella was very emotional and needed hugs from her daddy."

    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.

    Daniels' impressive skills came with helping his daughter practice at home.

    He said, "I've practiced with them at home on many occasions so it wasn't unfamiliar to me."

    Daniels, who is a lawyer in Bermuda, says his colleagues and neighbors have definitely taken notice of both his dancing skills and his selfless parenting.

    Jurors, police officers, and members of the prosecution have even been giving me twirls and plies as a token of appreciation for the video. Before having the girls I don't think I'd ever attempted any ballet moves before, but now everyone in Bermuda knows me for my toe-pointing.

    Not all heroes wear capes. Some even wear tutus.
