Lots of parents and children like to learn fun dance routines with one another. But this father and his daughters really know how to move.

Russ Papparotto had been a dancer for many years. When he and his wife started a family, he was overjoyed to see one daughter after another share his passion for dance.

So the girls and the dad practiced a dance together. Pretty soon, Russ and the girls were ready to take to the stage.

Russ and his older two daughters, Sioned and Brianna had performed onstage before. But Sophia, who was six, had never. So the stakes were high!

The day came, and the family had perfected a routine for the Experimental Movement Concepts Dance Concert.

The opening piano notes played to the song Cinderalla by Steven Curtis Chapman.

The youngest daughter, Sophia, sprinted onto the stage in time to the music. The child seemed incredibly confident.

When she had taken her place in the center of the stage, she performed some low key opening moves, hinting at what was to come.

Then the father walked onstage and knelt down. Sophia ran up to him, and he took her hand.

Sophia span into her dad’s arms and looked into his eyes. She span out again, moved her arms and shook her dad’s hand.

The dad stood up, took both of Sophia’s hands and started dancing with her, back and forth, across the stage.
