Dad Gives Hilarious Attempt Teaching Toddler To Dance

June 24th, 2020

No one ever said that parenting is all butterflies and rainbows. Realistically, there are lots of sleepless nights, tantrums, and stinky messes mixed in there too.

Since there’s no getting around the hurdles of parenting, sometimes the only thing you can do is try and laugh throughout your journey. Well, if you need help finding the humor in this role – internet star “How to DAD” will help save the day!

Jordan Watson is a dad from New Zealand who’s putting a funny spin on being a parent.

As a father of three, Jordan knows a thing or two about what it’s like having babies and raising kids. That’s why he creates “instructional” videos for the world – covering very important topics like, “how to wash a car with a baby” and “how to talk to a baby.”

Or, if you’ve ever been curious “how to push a baby in the stroller” – Jordan has a hilarious video guide for that as well!

Jordan’s parenting series is called “How To DAD” and he has more than 725K subscribers on YouTube alone.

As you might have guessed, Jordan’s just an average dad with an awesome sense of humor – trying to make light of everyday obstacles. It all started in 2015 when he created a video called “How to Hold a Baby” for a friend who was expecting a child.

In the instructional video, he teaches baby holding moves like “the telephone,” “box of beer,” and “the rugby ball hold.” According to The Guardian, it went viral overnight! This encouraged Jordan to make more videos, and now How to DAD has over 1.9 million followers on Facebook.

If you’ve ever wondered “How to Teach a Baby Contemporary Dance,” Jordan’s got you covered.

Don’t expect that the dad’s actually an expert in the subject. He starts the video by saying:

“Um, neither of us are like trained in the art of contemporary dance. But it’s one of those ones where I think they just do a move and then just give it a name.”

Jordan has his baby daughter by his side for the dance lesson. His kids accompany him in his other videos too, making them extra-cute.

He’ll show you how to do the “Contemporary Lift.”

Toddlers can bust out some pretty adorable dance moves if you crank up the music. Yet, if you’re looking to try something fancier – Jordan provides a good demonstration of a lift move.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t work so well having your baby lift you.

Learn how to do the “Contemporary Kick Yourself in the Butt.”

Watching Jordan having fun with his daughter is both comical and super sweet. They have Calum Scott’s version of “Dancing on My Own” in the background while they turn the living room floor into a stage.

Every parent should know how to do the “Emotional Rolling” and “Confusing Windmill” moves when teaching a baby contemporary dance. Of course!

The “Emotional Lying” move is melting hearts across the internet.

At one point, Jordan lies down on the ground with his arms stretched above his head. But instead of joining him, his daughter stops and lays her head on his stomach. Aww!

One person wrote:

“When she rested her head on you at 1:06 I instantly wanted to call my dad to tell him how much I love him”
