President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama danced the tango in Argentina at a State Dinner, and now you too can feel like the proudest parent watching your bar or bat mitzvah kid slow-dance with their middle school crush!

As ABC News reported:

“Hundreds of guests were entertained by an impromptu performance as the president—after initially resisting—sauntered across the dance floor with the professional dancer. Moments later, the First Lady also took a turn at the traditional Argentine dance.

The Obamas’ first night Argentina came immediately after their historic trip to Cuba, where the president did equally awkward and cute things. Both POTUS and FLOTUS are scheduled to fly to Patagonia on Thursday before heading back to Washington, D.C.
