Black History Month 2016 is the gift that keeps on giving.

Michelle Obama chose to celebrate the month by inviting 51 Black dancers to showcase their #BlackGirlMagic at the White House. The event consisted of a variety of routines, including ballet, hip-hop, and African dance, all led by legendary choreographer Debbie Allen.

The dancers completely slayed their routines, despite only rehearsing for one day. In her intro, FLOTUS touched on her personal love for dance, saying:

“Today is a very special day at the White House and it’s pretty special for me, personally, because I absolutely love dance,” says Obama. “I think it’s probably my favorite art form.”

She then added, “As you know, I never pass up the opportunity to show some moves now and then.” Just when you thought our First Lady couldn’t get any cooler.
