President Obama turned a state dinner into a show during his trip to Argentina on Wednesday.

During an evening an event center overlooking the Buenos Aires riverfront, President Obama was taking in a tango performance when a dancer in a shimmering gold dress beckoned him to the floor. At first, he declined - multiple times - but eventually relented, joining her for a few spins. First lady Michelle Obama joined in the action, too.

Argentina is the birthplace of the tango.
