Dad Surprises Daughter By Making Her Dream Dance Studio

Dance party, anyone?

Kevin Washington/ Facebook

In a viral video going around Facebook, one dad is making his teen daughter’s dreams come true. Kevin Washington of Richmond, Va. designed and built a custom dance studio for his daughter in their home, complete with a full-length mirror and ballet barre. The girl’s reaction when he surprised her with it on Friday? Priceless—and caught on camera by Dad.

The video, captioned “Surprising my FAVORITE DAUGHTER Lady with her Dance Studio ????????????????????????,” starts with Washington flipping on the light to reveal the studio, which also features specially-commissioned paintings of his daughter, done by artist Sone-Seeré Burrell, and a motivational quote (“Dance like nobody’s watching”) on the wall.

All the effort was well worth it, too, judging by the teen’s reaction. First speechless, and then jumping up and down while crying tears of happiness, she was completely shocked. “This is all I wanted,” squealed the girl. “A dance studio in our house!”

Mom LaToya shared the video of her daughter’s reaction as well, writing “She is one of my “WHY”. I will do anything for my 3. She now has her very own dance studio in the house.”

Since being posted to Facebook on Friday evening, the video has already received almost 720,000 views and over 13,000 shares. Commenting on the overwhelming response to their sweet surprise, Mrs. Washington said, “Thank you everyone for the love, positivity and shares! We are so blessed to be able to even do something like this for our daughter. She has talked about this dream for awhile and God made a way for us to bring it to fruition!
