JOHANNESBURG - US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama have once again showcased their dance moves by getting down with two Stormtroopers and R2-D2 on Star Wars day, which is celebrated by fans on 'May the fourth'.

In a video tweet from the official White House account, the Obamas are featured dancing to _Uptown Funk _by Bruno Mars. And with a nod to the words of Yoda, "Do. Or do not. There is no try", the caption is "Dance. Or dance not. There is no try."

The Obamas have never been shy on the dance floor, and in March they even braved the Tango at a state dinner in Argentina.

In 2015 the president reached a whole new level of coolness when he danced the Nae Nae with a giant glitter ball in the Oval Office in a promotional video for Dancing with the Stars.

Back in 2007, before he became president, Obama appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, sashaying to Crazy in Love by Beyonce.
