Donning a traditional Polynesian dress, six-year-old Lyra went on stage to dance the Hula with a classmate on 9 March

The pressure of competing against other dancers under the kindergarten category may have been too much for the little lady to bear.

Or at least that's what her dad thought, because he sensed that she needed him to step in.

In an adorable show of support, Rjay decided to dance Lyra's entire routine in front of the stage
