Forget “Dancing with the Stars,” because Barbara Bermudo, host of Univision’s “Primer Impacto,” may have started her own viral campaign called “Dancing with the First Lady” after doing the jig with Michelle Obama on her show recently.While out promoting her passion project, “Let’s Move!,” America’s favorite FLOTUS danced to Pitbull’s “Echa Pa’ lla” after speaking with the Puerto Rican host about her initiative to ensure our nation’s kids grow up healthy and reach their full potential.
According to Bermudo, the “Let’s Move” campaign is also working on getting 50,000 schools to have 60 more minutes of physical activity. While on “Primer Impacto,” Mrs. Obama also emphasized that exercise accompanied with a good diet, “ensures that every student has better attendance, test scores and learning ability.”
Bermudo also shared that her dance routine with the First Lady to the sounds of Mr. 305 was not rehearsed or planned.
“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,” Bermudo told the Huffington Post. “She immediately said yes and asked me to teach her so we could practice the steps. She learned very fast!”
This wasn’t the only time the First Lady displayed her dance talents. During a recent guest appearance on NBC’s “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” Mrs. Obama performed in a comedy sketch called “The Evolution of Mom Dancing.” In the skit, the First Lady did a series of dances with the late night host, including dances dubbed the “Go Shopping, Get Groceries,” the “Driving the Station Wagon,” the “Just the Hands Part of ‘Single Ladies’ ” and, of course, “the Dougie.”
The only dance left for Mrs. Obama to conquer is the latest internet craze, the Harlem Shake.
