Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald took time out of government formation talks today to bust some moves at a community centre in Dublin.
The TD for Dublin Central was in Ringsend and Irishtown Community Centre with Dublin Bay South TD Chris Andrews.
The pair proceeded to perform the Macarena dance with a group of children who were showing off their routine.
Newstalk's political correspondent Seán Defoe was at the event and caught the politicians in motion.

Ms McDonald said today that Sinn Féin would be "intensifying" its discussions to form a government this week.
She said the party "wants to form a government for change" and that they would be holding discussions with other parties and independents this week.
She said: "Everyone agrees that last week the people voted for change. The question for all parties is are they willing to be part of a government for change?"
"It is clear at this stage that Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael want to block change and maintain their grip on power.
"This is not what people voted for. In fact, they voted against the very policies implemented by Fine Gael and Fianna Fáíl over the last four years.
"That is why there was huge anger at the weekend at the prospect of Fianna Fáil/Fine Gael being returned to government, despite the outcome of the election."
