In addition to her impeccable style and her easy charm, the United States First Lady Michelle Obama also has rhythm in her veins and she ain’t afraid to show it.

In fact, she doesn’t shy away from showing off her funny, fancy moves during her many appearances.

Here’s some of her fancy footwork on display. Happy dancing to you…

In 2010, when US President Barack Obama and Michelle visited Mumbai, she stole the show with her koli dance moves. And sorry, Barack, she won the dance-off hands down. Photograph: Jason Reed/Reuters 


Michelle isn’t afraid to get down and groovy at an event to bring physical activity back to schools, hosted by the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance  and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation in Chicago, Illinois and here shorty got down, down down!

It’s a well known fact that Michelle loves pop queen Beyonce. So, during one of her events to promote ‘Let’s Move’ campaign, when one of Beyonce’s numbers popped up, she couldn’t help but start moving to the beats. Check her out here. Photograph: Kevin Lamarque/Reuters 


She’s done the waltz, she’s done the ‘Running Man’. And then she did the salsa. On the fourth anniversary of her ‘Let’s Move’ campaign, she joined TV star Mario Lopez during a Zumba lesson. Photograph: Joe Raedle/Getty Images

And like any dancer worth her salt, Michelle also went dhichik when she went Bollywood. In 2013, she had a filmi Diwali and danced with all the thumkas with choreographer Nakul Mahajan. Photograph: White House 


Michelle showed her sense of humour when she joined Jimmy Fallon in a sketch. She showed us what a mother's routine is like... through dancing.
