"We both admit that it's through projects like #daddydaughterdanceoff and #fathersongetdown that our love, respect and relationship becomes more and more positive and our bond becomes even stronger." - Nyah & Keith
Nyah asked her father Keith, to work with her on a project for "Celebration", the annual year end variety dance show that the cheerleaders put on and choreograph at her high school in Reseda, California, he replied "let's do it!"
As an accomplished cheerleader with a deep knowledge and passion for dance, Nyah decided on a generation vs. generation storyline, based on a daddy daughter conversation before he sends her off to college.
Nyah's cheerleading coach suggested that they start with an intro talking about sending Nyah off to college. From there Nyah and Keith wrote, and recorded their script. They then dug through records to find a couple of tracks that they each could use to create their dance combinations. For Nyah, working with her daddy on a project and making music was a special moment of shared passion that helped strengthen their bond.
Nyah choreographed the dances and taught her daddy Keith some new moves. They practiced until they had their show locked in. For Keith, working with his daughter Nyah is a tremendous opportunity for him as a parent to support his daughter. Keith says that, "it's an amazing way to support Nyah, and create life long memories in the same way that all her friends and teachers create memories and support her", which is a different feeling as a parent, everyone's on the same level with a project like this."
Nyah and her daddy Keith flawlessly executed their performance, which took them two days to create. The video of their performance took only one minute and twenty-seven seconds. One week after Keith posted the video on his personal Facebook page, their daddy daughter dance has 3.2 million views.
With over 70,000 shares and likes, Nyah and Keith believe that maybe their dance is striking a chord and has a deeper meaning. They both believe that the sensation over their video is an opportunity to challenge parents and kids to engage in a project together, like they did. They both admit that it's through projects like #daddydaughterdanceoff and #fathersongetdown (which they've done before in the past) their love, respect and relationship becomes more and more positive and their bond becomes even stronger.
