They continue to inspire! First Lady Michelle Obama and Scandal star Kerry Washington surprised some very excited students at Savoy Elementary School in D.C., one of the eight performance schools chosen for President Barack Obama‘s Turnaround Arts Initiative. The initiative uses the arts to improve academics and overall culture in the nation’s floudering schools.
Michelle Obama was lovely in a flowing top and beige palazzo pants, and flexed her famously fab arms for the students. Kerry was beaming in a sleek black top and harem pants. She even kicked off her shoes to get her groove on with the excited dance group!
We’re sure it’s a day the little ones will never forget.
