What do you think? Pretty nifty dance/fencing moves!
Directed by Hilary Bunt + Yvette Paxinos

Produced by Vashti Rosenberg
At the start of the video President Obama says, “It’s True, I always wanted to Fence!” and then he points at Daria and myself and says, “So, I might get some tips from you two.” Then 42 Seconds in he comes over and learns about fencing from us. (Took me awhile to get this up. Sorry!)
1)He “stabs” me with a Light Saber in front of cameras in what would become a picture seen around the world.
2) The President “pokes” Michelle Obama at one point with a Foam Saber and pretends to fence with her
3) He referees a touch with the panoramic view of the White House behind us. (Amazing!)
4) You can see Michelle trying to check out the Olympic medal twice: First time, President Obama moves it away and 2nd time I thought she was trying to shake my hand! (She finally gives up, sad!)
What a surreal day this was in my life!
