Video: Have You Seen This Dance-Off By North American College Seminarians?

A battle of tape shoes at the American seminary in Rome.

This dance-off by seminarians at the North American College in Rome was so popular the first time it made the rounds, we thought we'd bring it back for anyone who hasn't seen it. The video of the Rev. David Rider, 29, of Hyde Park, New York, and the Rev. John Gibson, 28, of Milwaukee, went viral when the two were filmed in April 2014 by journalist Joan Lewis of the Eternal Word Television Network (ETWN) at a fundraiser at the College. Rider warmed up the crowd with his tap-dance routine, and was then pushed aside by Gibson and his Irish step dancing. Soon it became a dance-off, as the seminarians tried to battle it out, impressing the crowd.
