The Obama's love of dance

06/05/2016

 
The Obama’s will take any chance they get to dance, and the latest has seen them dancing with Star Wars Stormtroopers at the White House, Club Dance Holidays takes a look back at America’s First Family and their obsession with dancing.
 
Yes, it’s true. Barack and Michelle Obama just love to show off their dancing skills when they can. And not just in one particular style, but any dance forms they can try. Whether it is for fun, or promoting a health initiative, trying the customs of another country, or in a celebratory mood, they never seem to say no to a dancing opportunity.
 
And this new video, which you can see on the BBC website here, of them dancing with Stormtroopers at the White House this week, along with 2016 being the final year of Barack Obama’s presidency, has made us here at Club Dance Holidays, to look back at the past 8 years to find the top dancing moments of the Obama’s. No doubt there will be more to come until they vacate the White House in January 2017.
 
In the mean time, here is our top moments. Enjoy!
