President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama Nail the Tango in Argentina
The Obamas slay, OK? U.S. President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama attended an official state dinner for Argentine President Mauricio Macri on Wednesday, March 23, and the first couple nailed the country’s national dance, the tango.
During the event held at the Kirchner Cultural Centre in Buenos Aires, guests were treated to a tango showcase. Making the performance all the more special? The fact that POTUS and his wife were invited to participate.
Michelle, who looked elegant in a satin tea-length dress, and a sharp suit-clad Barack lit up the dance floor with impressive footwork and plenty of Latin flavor.
This isn’t the first time the political pair have proved they know how to get their groove on. During his first presidential campaign, Barack made an October 2007 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where he joined the talk-show host in an impromptu boogie to Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love.”
“You’ve got some moves!” DeGeneres, 58, told the politician at the time.
Eight years later in May 2015, Michelle also appeared on DeGeneres’ show where the two had a friendly dance-off to Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk,” in support of the first lady’s “Let’s Move” campaign.
