A group of unconventional ballerinas have gone viral but not because of their flawless plies. A Philadelphia dance studio held a “Daddy Daughter Valentine’s Ballet Class” on Tuesday, and a bunch of daring dads stepped up to the challenge.
They looked nothing like this:
The Philadelphia Dance Center posted two videos to Facebook where they have since been viewed collectively over 20 million times. And you can see why. This is the most adorable thing I've seen on the internet not involving a puppy or a baby, maybe ever:
The second one, impossibly, is even better than the first:
Sure, most of these guys don't have "moves," per se. I've seen elephants at the zoo move with more grace and dexterity. And these guys' daughters out-dance them in every single duo.
That being said, nothing says "I'm comfortable with my masculinity AND have a big heart" quite like a man in a tutu attempting a plie.
I applaud these dads for showing us how it's done—they might suck at dancing, but they're killing it at dad-ing.
