MADISON, Wis. -- Jared Berggren, Ben Brust and Dan Fahey of the Wisconsin men’s basketball team and Brad Nardick of the Badgers’ wrestling squad are men of many talents.

They proved it last Friday.

The student-athletes visited  to celebrate its Winter Fun Day, going from classroom to classroom answering student questions, taking pictures and signing autographs.

In two shining moments, however, the men were able to showcase their dancing and singing abilities. The Badgers sang karaoke to Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite” and also break danced to “Beauty and A Beat” by Justin Bieber.

“It was fun to be able to join in the activities of the kids’ fun day,” Berggren said. “In regard to my dance moves, well, they speak for themselves.”

According to the teachers at Elvehjem Elementary, the Badgers’ willingness to dance “spoke volumes” to the school’s students.

“Never underestimate the power of mixing fun and education,” said Kelley Mosley, a teacher at Elvehjem Elementary.
