Dad Cracks Up When He Notices His 4-Month-Old Baby Dancing A Jig

Jess grew up in Oklahoma before moving to New York to become a writer. She has a cat named Agnes.

Do you remember the first time you started dancing? I don’t mean in a ballet class or at a school formal, but the moment as a child when you were suddenly compelled to move to the beat of some music.

To be honest, I don’t remember for myself, but if I had to guess, I would say it was probably while watching the “Under the Sea” segment of The Little Mermaid for about the 100th time.

Despite my failing memory, I do know I’ve enjoyed a happy dance or two in my time, especially as a kiddo. It’s one of those innate instincts we all carry with us. Usually, though, that skill requires mastering a previous ability to actually walk — or at least crawl. The little cutie in the video below, however, is way ahead of the game!

At just 4 months old, baby Ricah Besau stunned his dad, Joseph, with some fabulously fancy footwork. It really looks like the tyke is doing his own tiny Irish jig.

His pop can’t help but crack up behind the camera and turn on some traditional Celtic tunes as the silly boy continues smiling and dancing away in his bouncer. While speaking with Daily Mail, Joseph jokes, “He might have a career in Riverdance if he keeps that up. Whenever the music comes on, it’s just his natural reaction.” I would definitely sign this talented boy up for classes as soon as he can walk!

Along with his son’s mother, Keshia, the parents are especially baffled by Ricah’s toe-tapping since neither of them claim any Irish heritage.
