In celebration of Black History Month, First Lady Michelle Obama hosted a historic event Monday (February 8) in which 51 talented young black female dancers showed off their prowess, grace and athleticism in several rooms of the White House.

Dance legend Debbie Allen taught an electrifying African Master Class.

Famed choreographer Fatima Robinson taught hip-hop in the White House Dip room while ballet was being conducted in the East Room, and an Alvin Ailey instructor conducted class in the Blue Room.

When speaking to the young dancers, Michelle Obama encouraged them to keep reaching and perfecting their craft so that one day, news of their success won’t be considered so historic.
