Dad Helps Nervous 6-Year-Old Daughter Practice For Ballet Performance On Zoom

A Virginia dad helped his 6-year-old daughter prepare for a freestyle ballet performance on Zoom.


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.

Verse of the Day

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. — Ephesians 6:12-13 (NIV)
