Father-of-three performed some cool ballet moves while holding his daughter’s hand after she suffered stage fright during a performance.

Footage shows Marc Daniels rush to help his youngster during a dress rehearsal for her first ever dance recital.

He can be seen pirouetting and gracefully balancing on one leg beside his two-year-old daughter Bella as parents and teachers giggled.

‘Bella was very emotional and needed hugs from her daddy,’ said Mr Daniels.

‘Despite having a tantrum, I can tell she wanted to stay on stage and I didn’t want to discourage her before the big performance by making her be the only one to come off.

‘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.

‘I’ve practiced with them at home on many occasions so it wasn’t unfamiliar to me.’

The video has gone viral with over 611,000 views.
