Hearts melted when he took his daughter’s hand

Dad Marc Daniels, a father of three in Bermuda, charmed the internet when he hopped on stage during his daughter’s dance recital after she began to cry, according to the Washington Post. 

He takes his daughter’s hand and in khaki shorts and bright red tennis shoes, begins to do his best twirls and pliés — with a baby in his arms, no less. 

The audience applauds and hoots and the viral video taken by a parent has been viewed millions of times on YouTube from multiple postings.

Initially, Daniels thought his daughter Bella, 2-1/2, only needed a quick hug. He said later that he didn’t want his daughter to be the only child who had to to come off stage so he joined her.

From hero daddy to his own #hashtag

It didn’t take long for Daniels, who was filmed during that dance dress rehearsal recital at the end of May, to go from being a hero to his daughter to his own hashtag.

#Daderina fans were impressed with the muscular man’s moves.

They were touched by his tenderness.

Red Pumas = daddy dance shoes

The final ballet performance was in June and dad said his daughter Bella did great with no assistance. 

(But just in case, Daniels said he was wearing his red Puma shoes because they’re good for the toe point.)
