Cop Refused To Miss His Daughter's Dance Class, And It Has Melted All Of Our Hearts

A father will do anything for their daughter, even if it means stepping outside their comfort zone. For Officer Cody Brown, his daughter is his top priority, and when the important moments happen in her life he makes sure that he is there for them.

Brown works for the Castle Rock Police Department, and while he was on patrol he realized he was late for an event he had already agreed to go to. His daughter, Tessa, was participating in a "Bring Dads To Dance" night at her ballet class, and he has promised he would be there. The problem was that he was still on duty.

How did he handle it? With the dedication that only a police officer could have.

Tessa was all ready at dance class, all dressed up in her tights and leotard, but she obviously needed her dad to be there. Luckily, he rushed in, fully uniformed, and made his way to the barre.

He handled it like a true champ...

Brown was just one of many dads in the class, although he was definitely the only one rocking a police uniform. He had to keep it on even though his daughter was putting him through a series of tests because he had to be able to respond to his radio.

His daughter had him doing plies on the bar with her, and he did his best to keep up with the talented young lady while Tessa's mom filmed from the crowd. Even when they started doing the grand plies (aka a super deep squat) he managed to keep up with his daughter, making sure that she wouldn't miss out on the experience just because her dad is a cop.

Tessa gives him some helpful pointers, making sure his feet are in the proper positions, and luckily Officer Brown was happy to take all of his daughter's pointers, and it's her jumping for joy at the end that will bring a real smile to your face.
