During his three-day visit to Alaska, President Obama visited a Middle School where he viewed a student performance of a cultural dance performance.

The President seemed delighted by the show, grinning broadly and clapping during the performance as the students chanted native Alaskan songs and danced four different Yup’ik dances.

As the last song began, Obama jumped up and started dancing with the children.

“I’ve been practicing,” he said, as the delighted children watched him.

According to the White House press pool, one of the songs focused on honoring berries and another was about not being afraid.
