Dad Joins in Dance Routine When His Toddler Gets Stage Fright

Little Bella wanted to dance in her recital, but she got a terrible case of stage fright and couldn't stop crying. Fortunately, her quick-thinking dad knew just what to do!

He joined her in the wings of the theater where she could see him. Bella calmed somewhat, but it wasn't until her daddy started dancing with her that she was able to relax and enjoy herself! Not only did her daddy, Marc, a successful lawyer, risk personal embarrassment to comfort his two and a half year old, but he did it all while carrying Bella's younger sister, Suri!

Marc shared, “At home [Bella's] always dancing, but on Tuesday, that energy was clearly lacking – she simply wasn’t having any of it. It was definitely instinctive [to jump on stage] and I really didn’t even consider my actions."

That being said, Marc is very cautious about not wanting to take away from attention from the other dancers on their big day. He just wanted to support his own little girl. The crowd loved it and cheered, and the video went viral.

Now, Marc is often kidded when he's in court for his job by everyone from jurors to police officers and magistrates asking him to give a little twirl or other dance moves. Marc's been a good sport about it and likes that his impromptu performance at the dress rehearsal has brought so much joy!
