Former President Obama advises dancers like himself to 'stay in the pocket'

Barack Obama David Letterman The Late Show

In a preview for David Letterman's new Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, Obama talks about the chance opportunity that happened a handful of months before Prince's passing. When the Grammy victor invited Sasha to the floor to dance, Obama says he was "surprised" that she pulled him up with her.

"She always mocks my dancing", he said.

And in a new interview with fellow beloved, now retired public figure, David Letterman, the two discuss his dance moves.

It marks Obama's first TV talk show appearance since leaving the White House.

Find out all about his "dad moves" in the clip below.

The former president self-deprecatingly talks about his dancing "dad moves" in sharing an anecdote involving Prince, explaining how he has to be careful to "stay in the pocket" instead of pushing it a little too much.

"Everyone here knows dads who get out of the pocket, trying stuff they can't really pull off", like - what else?

Unlike his stint at "The Late Show with David Letterman", the focus of the Netflix show is to get to know the guests better in a more intimate, and personal way. "Karate kicks?" prompting Obama to respond, "Is that one of the things you do?"

My Next Guest Needs No Introduction premieres Friday, Jan. 10, at 12:01 a.m. PT on Netflix. Subsequent episodes feature an influential list of guests, including Jay-Z, Tina Fey, and George Clooney.

The full episode which includes Letterman's interview with Obama is scheduled to be released on Netflix on January 12.
