Michael Flatley’s status as ‘Lord of the Dance’ may be under threat, with a couple of American priests taking the internet by storm with their nifty footwork.
The Rev. David Rider of Hyde Park, New York, and the Rev. John Gibson of Milwaukee, are studying in Rome. Earlier this year they took a break from their classes to take part in a fundraiser at the North American College, which is an elite American seminary near to the Vatican.
