It’s raining, it’s pouring; don’t let your kids stop playing.
Marc Daniels. Lawyer, former politician, and family man. He’s also a dad that dances ballet.
Move over Mr. Johnson, a new dad is taking over the internet. And it looks like his reign of cuteness will last a while.
Showing what it means to be a truly supportive father, Marc Daniels, clutching baby daughter Suri, came up on stage of his daughter Bella’s ballet recital in the Bermuda City Hall to dance with her.
In the video above, Bella came up on stage with the rest of her classmates to begin their routine. She suddenly stopped, frozen in fear and started crying while the rest of the group continued dancing. Daniels then went up on stage, showing amazing grace and coordination (those red shoes!) for a man his size as he held his daughter’s hand and danced through the whole routine.
The father now dubbed as the “Daderina” knew that his daughter needed some encouragement on the sidelines. But after a quick hug and words of love, he asked Bella if he could dance with her. “I walked on holding Suri and stood next to her, trying to help build her confidence… I asked if she wanted to dance with daddy and she nodded, so I thought I’d join in”, he said to The Independent. The rest of the story is now part of digital legend, which includes an aforementioned wrestler in a tutu.
According to reports, Daniels is a former Senator in the Progressive Labour Party of Bermuda and is currently a managing director at a top law firm. Because of the video’s immense popularity, even members of the courtrooms where he practices litigation would show him “twirls and plies” in gratitude. If these credentials aren’t enough to call him an amazing father, would practicing with his daughters behind-the-scenes suffice?
“I’ve practised with them at home on many occasions, so it wasn’t unfamiliar to me,” Daniels added. This may be a sign to switch professions- he was invited back to perform with his daughter and classmates. Sign us up for ballet too!
