David Hallberg Just Taught A Normal Guy to Dance; Our Hearts Exploded

November 9, 2017

You guys, the solution to “dad dancing” has been right under our noses all along: It’s to hire American Ballet Theater principal/face of Nike David Hallberg as dance coach to the masses!

Earlier this week, Business Insider got the danseur of all danseurs (IMHO, at least) to get back to basics with their video producer Kevin Reilly. What was Reilly’s skill level before this clearly life-changing lesson? “I hear constantly that I have no idea what I’m doing, that I am a terrible dancer,” Reilly tells Hallberg. “I learned everything from the movie ‘Hitch’ and I need to improve on that.”

Our new favorite dynamic duo cover the oh-so-essential step-touch, modified balancés, and—duh—bowing like a goshdarn ballet prince, all while sheepishly charming the life out of anyone with a beating heart. (Seriously, if you don’t think this clip is the sweetest thing you’ve seen all week, you might need to check if you actually have a soul or not.)

Mr. Hallberg, what’s your availability like to work with MY dad on his moves? This simply can’t be the end of your coaching days—the dads of America need you!
