Florida Governor Rick Scott has more dance moves than simply moonwalking the state back into the Culture Wars of the 1990s.

Thursday Scott was captured on film doing a merry little jig at Miami Beach's South Pointe Elementary School, as first reported on the Miami Herald's Naked Politics blog.

The governor was there to announce AT&T's $200,000 investment to the Florida Education Foundation, which funds online help for students trying to surpass the state's new Common Core standards.

He stopped by a music class where children played recorders, tambourines, and drums while the lanky governor skipped, hopped, and dragged his feet to their bangs and clangs. Watch the video above or a particularly hypnotizing highlight in gif below.

This isn't the first time Scott has been filmed getting down and funky.

In November 2011, Scott was caught behind the decks on a cruise ship bopping to "I Will Survive." By the end of the video, folks screamed "Get it govvy gov!" as Scott does the electric slide in a crowd of women.

In 2010 as a gubernatorial candidate, Scott courted the votes of Cuban seniors in Miami by salsa dancing -- or at least attempting to. Check out his hip-hop and salsa moves below:
