Not only did Obama graciously chat with the little girl, she also busted a few moves with her, posting the video on social media to prove it.

“Parker, I’m so glad I had the chance to meet you today (and for the dance party)!” wrote Obama in the caption accompanying the video. “Keep on dreaming big for yourself… and maybe one day I’ll proudly look up at a portrait of you!”

Despite her tender age, little Parker Curry is already represented by a PR firm. According to the Daily Mail, the toddler is currently repped by “lifestyle PR firm” TAA Public Relations, which also represents the Smithsonian Institution.

As the girl’s mother, Jessica Curry, told CNN, her daughter was fascinated by Obama because she thinks that she’s a queen.

“Parker was in front on the portrait, and I really wanted her to turn around so I could get a picture with her, and she genuinely, honestly would not turn around. She was uncooperative with me because she was just so focused on the portrait and studying it, and she was just so fascinated,” said Curry. “I realized that she believes Michelle Obama is a queen, and she wants to be a queen as well.”

After the former FLOTUS shared the pics, rapper/actor Common took to Twitter to offer praise. “Queen Recognizing Queen,” he wrote. “I love everything about this meeting and photo!”
