US President Barack Obama is known to break into impromptu jigs and surprise his guests. That tradition continued when he broke into a synchronous native Alaskan dance along with children at a school he visited during his trip to the state earlier this week.

That he had practiced for the traditional dance also became quite clear when he was able to move his hands and legs in perfect harmony along with the tiny children who were all geared in native attire.

Before the dance, the US President was treated to a cultural performance by the children.

In remarks after the performance, Obama expressed his happiness to be present at the event and said that he would try to bring First Lady Michelle Obama and his kids in future.
