BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — President Barack Obama is giving Argentina’s famed tango dancers a run for their money.

Obama was taking in a tango performance during a state dinner in his honor when a female dancer in a shimmering gold dress beckoned him to the floor. At first, Obama declined — multiple times.

Eventually, Obama relented, joining the dancer for a few turns on the dance floor.

First lady Michelle Obama got in on the action, too, pairing up with a male tango dancer.

Argentine President Mauricio Macri hosted the Obamas.
