Capitol Hill got some culture when Michelle Obama brought African dance classes to the White House.
In celebration of Black History Month, FLOTUS organized a handful of dance classes yesterday led by legends like Debbie Allen, Fatima Robinson and Alvin Ailey instructors, reports Vibe.
“Looking out at these beautiful, talented young women, I know that we have the power to keep reaching higher and defying the odds and achieving those firsts, and seconds, and thirds, and hundreds and thousands until a Black principal dancer is no longer cause for a headline,” Obama told the group of 51 local Black girls who attended the classes. “And our children are limited only by the size of their dreams and their willingness to work for them.”
We love it!
