Being a father comes with many unexpected responsibilities. In addition to keeping your children protected and fed, you also need to be involved and stoop to their level. This means playing with them and doing things that you don’t normally do. This can be a particular problem for fathers who have daughters and who consider themselves too “masculine” to do what their daughter wants.
Luckily, that doesn’t apply to Josh Rinder, the father in this dad-daughter story. As anyone who watches the Today Show knows, the famous dad-daughter dance competition is held every year. As part of the competition, the show creates a hashtag and encourages dads and daughters across the United States to submit their best dance videos for the competition. And, of course, the one who wins the competition is showered with all sorts of prizes. Although there are always many strong competitors, one pair stood out. In one video, a dad and daughter danced to Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling” and made a splash online.
As the song begins, Rinder and his six-year-old daughter Audrey are warmed up by applause. The daughter is wearing a cute pink dress and the dad is trying to match her in pink plaid pants. Once the rhythm picks up, the two begin to perform choreographed moves that are adorable and amazing! There’s a lot of jumping, hip shaking, shaking – there’s even a few dabs for good measure.
