President Obama will want to pack his dancing shoes for his trip to California next week, as he is set to make a special in-studio appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

The announcement was sent out through DeGeneres' Twitter account, including a joke that the president would be participating in a game of "Never Have I Ever" with the host.

The taped appearance will be the first time a sitting president appears in studio on the show. Obama was last interviewed in 2014 by Ellen DeGeneres in a two-way camera interview from the White House, where he promoted enrollment in the Affordable Care Act and joked about how DeGeneres broke his "retweet" record.

But his 2007 appearance on the show as he was campaigning for president was arguably the most playful -- as he entered the studio dancing to Beyonce's "Crazy in Love."

His wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, followed up with a dance-filled performance of Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk" in March of last year to highlight her "Let's Move" fitness campaign.
