— -- President Obama's been known to bust a move now and then -- and he's not a bad dancer.

Today, he had the opportunity to show off his moves on the last day of his three-day trip to Alaska.

Obama stopped at Dillingham Middle School and was treated to a cultural performance by the school kids, featuring native dances and songs.

After the kids had finished performing a number of dances, POTUS joined in.

"I've been practicing," Obama said.

Along with the children dressed in colorful native clothing, Obama waved his hands to the beat.

Following the dance, Obama made a few remarks to the audience.

"I've got to make sure I bring Michelle and the girls back," Obama said to applause. "In the meantime we are going to enjoy the fish you gave us. I already had some for lunch. It was really good."

The president said he was "so happy to be here.

"The young people here especially, I'm very proud of you. Keep up your traditions even as you go out into the big world, and learn and bring back the knowledge that's going to help to build this community," Obama added. "We're very very proud of all of you."

“Thanks to all the kids for the great dancing,” said Obama, who then took a group picture with the kids, in front of a sign that read “Camai President Obama." Camai is a native Alaskan greeting. After getting a picture, Obama greeted the kid dancers, hugging a few of them and thanking them.

Earlier in the day, Obama met with local fisherman and tried some salmon jerky.
