Things are getting spooky around the White House. And no, it’s not because the election is just one week away. Instead, the Obamas celebrated Halloween at their annual party, and this time, they really got into the spirit of things with their own dance moves. While watching the children in attendance break it down to a choreographed version, Barack and Michelle Obama danced to Michael Jackson's "Thriller," proving that they have all the right moves to lead this country. But this isn’t the first time that the Obamas have proven they're overly qualified to be dancers-in-chief. Throughout the past eight years in office, both the President and First Lady have proven time and time again that they have some serious moves, and they just love to show them off.
In fact, if given the chance, the Obamas seem more than eager to dance in front of a crowd. At their annual Halloween party, for instance, they weren’t necessarily supposed to do anything except watch the kids dance, but neither of them seemed to be able to control themselves. They mimicked the moves that the kids were performing and even added a few of their own. The rhythm always seems to get these two in the end.
And actually, this has been happening since before they were even in office. During a 2007 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, President Obama impressed the talk show host when he came out dancing and didn’t stop until she did. Standing side-by-side, the two showed off their moves to Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love,” a song that no one in their right mind can avoid dancing to.
The First Lady showed off even more impressive skills when she was on the show in 2015. With the cast of So You Think You Can Dance backing them up, Michelle and DeGeneres went head-to-head in an epic dance-off to “Uptown Funk.” And they didn’t miss a single step the entire time.
I’m not sure who takes the title as best dancer in the Obama family, but it’s clear from this video that the first family who dances together definitely stays together.
