Dancing With the President! Barack and Michelle Obama Tango in Argentina
By Jackie Willis
President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama attended a state dinner in Buenos Aires, Argentina on Wednesday night that quickly turned into a dance party.
POTUS and FLOTUS stepped out with their professional dance partners to try their hand at the tango, a routine that originated in the country. President Obama appeared to take the dance very seriously as he twirled his partner, who was wearing a glitzy gold dress, and even attempted to do a dip.
Prior to debuting his tango skills, the president also assisted Hamilton star, Lin-Manuel Miranda, in a free-style rap when the cast of the Broadway show visited the White House. "OK, drop the beat," Obama instructed the drummer before helping Miranda by presenting him with cue cards of political terms and topics to include in his rhyme.
