Bryan Witt, of Newport News, Virginia, helped his daughter, Abigail, practice her dance to Tchaikovsky’s “Dance of the Little Swans.”

Abigail was extremely nervous about her dance performance on Zoom, where she’s been taking ballet classes during the coronavirus pandemic, according to her mom, Kristen Witt, who also helped her daughter practice.

“Over the next few days, she practiced many times and would get upset and cry at the thought of messing up,” Kristen Witt said. “So, I’d practice with her to boost her confidence.”

Bryan Witt had learned the dance moves in his own by watching his wife and daughter rehearse so many times, so he stepped in to “get her spirits up,” according to Kristen Witt.
