Michelle Obama 'random dances' at Va. appearance


ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) -- They called it "random dancing" but First Lady Michelle Obama broke out some moves that resembled subdued variations of "the Monkey" or "the Jerk" during an appearance at a northern Virginia high school.

A screaming, raucous auditorium filled with elementary and middle school students greeted Obama and the cast of the Nickelodeon TV show "iCarly" at Hayfield Secondary School on Friday.

The appearance promoted an upcoming episode featuring Obama in which she thanks military families for their sacrifices.

A staple of the show is a segment of random dancing, which Obama performed both in the episode that premieres Monday and on stage Friday.

Obama's dance moves drew plaudits from the "iCarly" cast. But she drew some boos when she told students about legislation to add more vegetables to school lunches.
