A dad-of-three stole the show after rushing onto stage to hold his daughter’s hand after she suffered stagefright during a ballet performance.

Marc Daniels, 39, was summoned to the wings at Hamilton City Hall in Bermuda on May 29, after his daughter Bella froze on stage during a dress rehearsal for her first ever dance recital.

The self-employed barrister thought he’d be able to calm the two-year-old down from the wings when she started throwing a tantrum on-stage.

But when that didn’t work, Marc, clutching his youngest daughter Suri under his arm, went above and beyond the call-of-duty and marched onto stage to help his daughter.

Heartwarming footage shows the dad-of-three spinning and expertly pointing his toes seamlessly alongside his daughter.

Clearly a natural, Marc’s impromptu performance was met with a loud applause by the few teachers and parents in attendance, to which he responded with a proud wave.

Not about to hang up his tutu anytime soon, Marc has been invited back by In Motion School of Dance to perform alongside the girls again, on June 9.

Determined not to detract attention from the girls, but insisting he’ll be waiting in the wings just in case, Marc said: ‘When I arrived downstairs, Bella was very emotional and needed hugs from her daddy.

Self-employed barrister and busy dad-of-three, Marc Daniels, is no stranger to balancing multiple tasks at once, but he may well have out-done himself on May 29, when his daughter, Bella, started throwing a tantrum on-stage. Practicing during a dress-rehearsal for her first ballet recital in the City Hall of Hamilton, Bermuda, two-and-a-half-year-old Bella began to cry uncharacteristically as she stepped on stage, and Marc was summoned to the wings to try and calm her down.

‘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.

‘At home she’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.

‘Before having the girls I don’t think I’d ever attempted any ballet moves before, but now everyone in Bermuda knows me for my toe-pointing – maybe it’s never too late to become a ballerina.

‘I don’t want to detract from the girls’ attention on their special night, but I am mentally prepared to run on-stage, if necessary, to support Bella.’

And Marc’s impressive dance moves didn’t go unnoticed among his work colleagues either.

He said: ‘Jurors, police officers and members of the prosecution have even been giving me twirls and plie´s as a token of appreciation for the video.

‘Even in court the other day, one of the magistrates made a comment about my moves that prompted the court to erupt into laughter.’
