Dad Dons Tutu for His Daughter's Ballet Class: 'He's Just a Really Good Dad'

It was parent night at the ballet school.

A Tennessee dad caused quite a stir when he showed up to his 8-year-old daughter’s dance class in a tutu.

Thanh Tran showed up to "parents night" for his daughter, Adriana Cross, at her ballet school last Monday. Adriana had been telling her dad for weeks that if he was going to come, he had to wear a tutu.

“It took a couple of weeks to convince him,” Adriana’s mom, Rebecca Tran, told “She told him he didn’t have a choice.”

The tutu was part of Rebecca Tran’s old Halloween costume from a few years back and had been sitting in a box in the garage. 

When the day for the 1-hour ballet class with parents came, Thanh Tran decided to grant his daughter's wish.

“I thought it was hilarious — I was crying I was laughing so hard,” Rebecca Tran said. “He got a couple looks and people trying not to laugh.”

In the class, parents, who were mostly moms, had to do twirls, leaps, and all of the different ballet positions.

And Thanh Tran did it all with a smile on his face.

“He’s just a really good dad,” Rebecca Tran said.
