VIDEO: This 4-year-old is an Irish dancing sensation

Four-year-old Oscar Donnelly, from Coatbridge in the UK, has got some amazing moves.

The little lad was filmed by his mum Annie Walters dancing to the Kilkenny Races set, a complex set dance that children three times his age would struggle with.

It's performed at a speed of 110 BPM which is something teenage dancers, at the earliest, would usually attempt.

Most dancers don't even start in hard shoes at all until much later.

The video has already been viewed over 200,000 times after Annie sent it to Fusion Fighters Facebook page.

Oscar is a multi-award winning Irish dancer with a national under-6 title to his name in Scotland.

He only started competing in October of last year. 

As you can see from the video he pulls off some amazing moves, all in time with the rhythm of the music.

Michael Flatley might be the Lord of the Dance but Oscar might just be the heir to his throne.
