We could all use something to make us smile nowadays, and catcher Brian Vance's dance moves certainly fit the bill. One year later, the video of the dancing bullpen catcher is still fantastic.

Last July, catcher Brian Vance of the Kenosha Kingfish entertained the nation with some incredible dancing skills. Despite being the listed bullpen catcher, Vance didn't let a baseball game stop him from breaking out a full dance routine to Silentó's "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)" and Beyonce's "Single Ladies" during the fourth inning of a Northwoods League game.

Vance's dance moves, performed in full shin guards and pads, went viral immediately. He made the local news and recorded a full-length routine, which included splits and even more crazy dancing, for the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

If you've ever put on catcher's gear, you know how hard dancing like this on a summer day can be. Vance's technical skill and stage presence could easily earn him a spot on many dance groups.

Vance is still in college and plays D1 baseball for St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia. Hopefully he's been practicing his dancing skills during the unexpected time off from baseball. Whenever baseball returns, we need to see Vance back out there, even if it's part of the on-field entertainment.
