What is better than watching Michelle Obama dancing? Watching her dance to Pitbull’s “Echa Pa’ Lla”!

The chance to see FLOTUS in action came as part of a special interview conducted by TV host Barbara Bermudo for Univision’s "Primer Impacto." In the segment, the First Lady spoke about her "Let's Move" campaign. For three years she has led a fight against childhood obesity and established healthy eating habits.

The Puerto Rican host, who in an interview with HuffPost Voces described Michelle as a warm, funny and very accessible woman, said the dancing at the end of the conversation came spontaneously.

"It was not prepared. I did bring the music and told her I had brought Pitbull’s single because I would like both of us to move together and to support the campaign," said Bermudo. "She immediately said yes and asked me to teach her so we could practice the steps. She learned very fast!"

Among other things, Bermudo explained the "Let's Move" program is also working on getting 50,000 schools to have 60 more minutes of physical activity. Obama also emphasized exercise accompanied with a good diet, "ensures that every student has better attendance, test scores and learning ability."

This is not the first time the First Lady shows what she can do on the dance floor. She was recently spotted alongside comedian Jimmy Fallon demonstrating the "Evolution of Mom Dancing" to encourage parents everywhere to get up and move with their kids.

The full interview can be seen on “Primer Impacto” on Wednesday, March 6.
