Filmmaker Ava Duvernay tweeted out the clip as well. “I miss my Dad. He would have done this for me,” she said. “To all the many, many millions of brothers out there being great, thank you.”

“I can’t even believe it,” studio owner Erin Lee told Fox 29 of the sudden attention. “I am ecstatic.”

Lee added, “This is what I care about. Good dads being highlighted. This is the part that’s amazing for me.”

The classes are open to children ages 4-8, and no dance experience is necessary.
