Barack Obama talks dancing with Prince on David Letterman's new Netflix show

Barack Obama talks dancing with Prince on David Letterman's new Netflix show

"And Prince asked Sasha [Obama's daughter] to come up and dance - and she's an excellent dancer", he said, in conversation with Letterman. "Then Sasha pulls me up, which surprises me because she always mocks my dancing, but I have 'dad moves.'" Cue the presidential dancing advice for dads across America.

David Letterman is making his Netflix debut this Friday with "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman", and the first episode includes Barack Obama telling the story of when he danced with the late rocker Prince. Because it's Barack Obama.

"I think the key is", Obama said, "what we call staying in the pocket".

Obama also tells Letterman that parents who want to dance need to remember the golden rule of "staying in the pocket".

Obama goes on to explain what he means by that, pointing out how dads run the risk of "trying stuff they can't really pull off" once they step outside the pocket. Obama says he uses his "dad moves".

"Really? Karate kicks?" the former Late Show host asks. That prompts a roar of laughter from Letterman.

Letterman's series will consist of six one-hour episodes, and each will feature a single guest.

Last week, it was revealed that Barack Obama would be stepping back into the talk show circuit, at least to visit David Letterman for his upcoming Netlix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman.
