Even as Michelle Obama’s “Mom Dancing” video with Jimmy Fallon was going viral this weekend, Sasha Obama’s dance recital was not to be missed: President Obama took an hour out of his schedule last night to attend his youngest daughter's dance recital at an arts center in suburban Maryland.

The White House said 11-year-old Sasha performed during a recital Saturday evening at the Music Center at Strathmore, a nonprofit arts center in North Bethesda, Md.
