A dance studio in Philadelphia is running a ballet class for daughters and their dads. Our hearts are warmed.

Dads and daughters in Philadelphia are bonding in the sweetest way – by having joint ballet classes.

Dance studio E’Chappe Dance Arts runs the father-daughter classes, which combine both ballet and yoga.

In a heartwarming video shared by the studio, a group of tutu-clad daughters stand side-by-side with their dads in the ‘BOGA’ class.

The clip was posted four days ago and has already garnered millions of views across social media. Various famous faces have also been sharing the video across their own channels, including actress Jennifer Garner, who captioned the video:

“Dads are the best. #TutuTuesday on a Monday.”
