Dancing Dads Don Tutus for Annual Recital

It's a tradition for the dads to dance.

Dads did not disappoint when Miss April's Dance, a recreation program offered through the city of Murrieta Community Services Department, held its annual recital March 18.

Children as young as 3 practiced their tap, ballet, hip hop and jazz numbers for several weeks in preparation for the recital held at the Murrieta Community Center.

It is also tradition for the dads to dance, so they practiced in secret leading up to the big night. The result? Their sons, daughters, family members and the rest of the audience couldn't help but chuckle when the dads opened their act wearing brightly-colored tutus, leaping across the stage. (Watch the attached video to see the dads dance.)
