As musicians and dancers around the world attempt to move some of their classes online, their pets aren’t always on board…
A ballet teacher was recording an at-home dance class when her loving cat decided to steal the show.
As American dancer Amelia Love Clearheart taught her first remote lesson from her living room, her mischievous moggy Aurora decided to spontaneously leap into her arms for a quick snuggle.
Watch the heartwarming moment below.

“She’s never done that before! She really wants to be a part of the show,” Clearheart laughs, as she wraps her arms around her pet and pauses pawses the lesson.
Seattle-based Clearheart was filming the online lesson for her 10- to 14-year-old dance students to stream from home, amid coronavirus quarantining.
She told Buzzfeed News that the adorable feline often weaves between her feet, but this was the first time she had jumped into her arms.
Clearheart said her adopted kitty somehow knew, a hug was just what she needed in that moment.
“For me, this is about cats being cats, but it’s also about humans having our needs met by animals,” she said. “They’re saving people.”
