Dancing Priest Nails Dance Moves At High School Homecoming Performance

A South Florida priest is warming hearts across the country with a spirited performance at a high school dance.


Father Ricardo Rivera Ortiz joined the dance routine halfway through the homecoming prep assembly at Cardinal Gibbons High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, receiving loud applause from the students.

The clip shows the dance team and cheerleaders lined up across the basketball court. As they began their routine, Father Ricardo, dressed in his black priest robe and collar, approached with his arms stretched wide.

He seamlessly joined the dance team, facing the crowd and perfectly executing all the arm movements and fast steps alongside the dancers.

He has been nicknamed the ‘dancing priest’ by the students and school, suggesting that his dance career has just begun and this might not be his last performance.
