Netflix has released the first look at My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, its new interview series hosted by David Letterman. In the minute-long clip, seen above, former president Barack Obama appears to be in the middle of a full set about dancing with Prince during a show a few months before his death, and what risks not to take when dancing as a dad.

"I have dad moves, and I think the key is what we call 'staying in the pocket,'" he tells Letterman. "You gotta stay in the pocket."

He goes on to explain that dads who move out of the pocket often embarrass themselves, before dealing with a heckler (David Letterman) just before the clip cuts out.

My Next Guest Needs No Introduction
will stream monthly on Netflix, and guests include JAY-Z, Malala Yousafzai, and George Clooney. Barack Obama's episode premieres January 12.
