Many onlookers filmed the couple as they gleefully danced from their concert box seats at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland. The videos of the Obamas dancing was shared all over social media. One of the onlookers also tweeted right away.

Earlier this month, Michelle Obama and Sasha were also found dancing along with the singer’s mother, Tina Knowles Lawson, at another Beyoncé and Jay-Z concert in Paris. Michelle Obama and Tina Knowles are found to be great friends as well.

The former First Family have good ties with both Beyoncé and Jay-Z. During Obama’s tenure as the president the administration also frequently included the pair at events and in White House initiatives. Beyoncé also performed at the first couple’s inaugural dance in 2009 and at the presidential inauguration in 2013. Both Beyoncé and Michelle Obama are known for their volunteer work. And they even collaborated together for a campaign back in 2011.

Beyoncé teamed up with Michelle Obama up in 2011 for the first lady’s “Let’s Move” campaign, which aimed to fight childhood obesity. She did so by serving her own music video that was used in Mrs. Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign. The video was distributed to junior high schools across the country at the beginning of May 2011.
