In the clip of the talk show's first episode, the former president talked about spending a night dancing with Prince.
“This was probably three or four months before he died and Prince asks [my daughter] Sasha to come up and dance, and she’s an excellent dancer,” Obama said in the clip. “Then Sasha pulls me up, which surprises me because she always mocks my dancing, but I have dad moves.”
Obama then talks about the key to dancing as a parent, which he calls "staying in the pocket."
You’ve got to stay in the pocket because I think everybody in here knows dads who get out of the pocket and they’re trying stuff that they can’t really pull off,” he said, mentioning karate kicks as an example of a "dad" dance move.
