Most orangutans are known for their orange coats of fur and lanky arms. But this fellow is apparently trying to make a name for himself through his dancing skills.

While visiting Melbourne Zoo, Douglas Cowley noticed that one of the baby orangutans had quite some moves. The ape put on display its best spinning all the while using some dry grass as a prop, showing off for patrons. But it looks like this little girl named Ava wasn’t all that impressed—that is, until the orangutan went into some tumbling stunts. 

Somebody get this animal on So You Think You Can Dance.
