Father Ricardo Rivera, a senior theology teacher and recently ordained priest who works at Cardinal Gibbons Catholic High School in Fort Lauderdale has become quite the internet sensation.
In a now-viral video, he can be seen showing off his dance skills last month at the school’s homecoming pep rally, reports Good Morning America.
In the video, he joins the school’s dance team during a routine much to the delight of the students and fans. It was a complete surprise. The school nor the team was aware prior to the performance that Father Rivera was going to join them.
He had only attended one 15-minute rehearsal but managed to learn the choreography on his own by watching a video, the school told Good Morning America.
The video currently has 25,000 views on the school’s Twitter account.
