So can this president dance?

Watch as the new president of America, Barack Obama dances with his wife Michelle - then throws some more funky moves.

Their first dance was to the song At Last, and sung by Beyonce.

The ball was the first of 10 special celebrations that they went to, stretching late into the night.

Later, President Obama got a bit more funky in a faster groove as Shakira, Mary J Blige, Faith Hill and Mariah Carey sang along with Stevie Wonder to his hit song Signed, Sealed, Delivered.
