President Obama Busts A Move While Visiting Kenya And It's Glorious

He's got rhythm!

President Obama proved to the nation he could sing during Charleston shooting victim Clementa Pickney's funeral last month, and now, we know he can dance. 

While visiting his father's home country of Kenya last Saturday, the U.S. commander-in-chief made sure to balance out the speeches he gave the community — touching upon his heritage, and gay and women's rights — with a little fun.

After a dinner at Nairobi's State House, Obama performed the a dance called Lipala to the song "Sura Yako," alongside First Lady Kenyatta, and according to the BCC, it's all the rage. It's been said to be most similar to the "Gangnam Style" dance that took over the U.S.

The band that sings that song, Sauti Sol, posted a video of the president getting his groove on to Instagram. 

"The #LipalaDance #SuraYako is his new favorite Kenyan dance!" they wrote.

We'll let the prez break it down:


Do a turn.

Step to the left!

And then... 

Step to the right!

Now *Everybody clap your hands* ... OK, wrong song. Get it, Mr. President!

Check out the full dance below:

Way to bust a move, Mr. President!
