Dancing Priest Nails Dance Moves At High School Homecoming Performance

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


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

The clip shows the dance team and cheerleaders lined up across the basketball court at the school. As they began their routine, Father Ricardo, dressed in a black priest robe with his collar, walked up to them stretching out his arms wide.

He got in line with the dance team and faced the crowd and perfectly hit all the arm movements and doing fast steps with the rest of the dancers.

Father Ricardo got a roaring applause as he nailed the dance moves in front of his students. ‘There’s nothing like a #Gibbons pep rally! #DancingPriest,’ the high school wrote on its Twitter page when sharing the video of the priest.

He was nicknamed as ‘dancing priest’ by the students and school and seems like his dance career has just kick-started and this might not be his last one.

Verse of the Day

The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. — Romans 13:9-10 (NIV)
