President Barack Obama’s dance skills will be on display this evening, according to his wife.

First lady Michelle Obama said that the president “will shake his groove thing” at a Latin music concert being held at White House on Monday. Gloria Estefan, Ricky Martin and Romeo Santos are among the artists lined up to perform.

The first lady made the prediction this morning during a Latin music workshop for students, according to a White House transcript.

“Now, the percussive beats and the buoyant melodies from these songs come just -- from just about everywhere,” Obama told the students. “You'll learn they come from the Caribbean and Mexico, and from Central and South America, and also even from Africa and Europe. And when you put all of that together, you can’t help but move to the music — even the president, you will see tonight, will shake his groove thing every now and then.”

UPDATE: The White House announced on Monday evening that the concert will be postponed "in light of today’s tragic events at the Washington Navy Yard and out of respect for the victims and their families."

“‘We are going to groove it, the whole night long, baby.’ Now this presumably is a reference to the fact that the mother, having bought the bag, decides to make some indentations on it, to make some ‘grooves’ on the bag, a sort of decorative pattern.”
