There’s something very beautiful about the father-daughter relationship, and it’s something we love to report on. Recently there was a video of a dad coming to the rescue of his abandoned daughter that we couldn’t resist.

In the video, a group of children can be seen performing a Chilean dance routine. While all the children are in pairs, one little girl is having to dance solo.

The children all carry out one round of the dance, and the girl manages to do it by herself. However, her loving dad was not prepared to see his daughter dance alone. He jumped up and joined his daughter in the routine.

All kudos to the dancing dad as he pulled off the routine beautifully, much to the delight of the audience. What was noticeable was that when he joined his daughter, she seemed to have an extra skip in her step!

To add a little more love to the choreography, the pair added signaled heart symbols to each other. And that is the best way to sum up the whole episode: a few minutes of love. Not just a love for dancing, but of that precious bond between a dad and his daughter that will see him do the cutest of things just to be by her side.
