Dancing Queen: Theresa May pokes fun at her limited dance moves

British PM Theresa May kicks off keynote speech with ABBA's 'Dancing Queen'

May, who received a standing ovation after dancing onto the stage to Dancing Queen by ABBA, said she was confident that she could clinch a deal with the EU.

We're sorry to break it to you, but we don't make the rules - ABBA's seminal 1976 hit, "Dancing Queen", has been ruined thanks to Theresa May and her weird entrance at this year's Conservative Party conference.

Theresa May today danced onto the stage to deliver her make or break speech in a bid to unite Britain and her bitterly divided party. She danced!"Oh my days!"And Abba's Dancing Queen is playing". I know, so meta.

Awkwardly pumping her arms in the air and spinning around, the British prime minister took a moment to poke fun at herself before starting her speech at the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham. "What might have seemed amusing after a couple of cocktails is ridiculous and inappropriate in the harsh light of reality".

May has been filmed dancing on several occasions over the past few months, but has been repeatedly mocked for her "cringeworthy" style.

May appeared cheerful, showing her moves upon entering the stage to the beat of the 1970's classic.

The PM told Tory activists: 'Can I just say, you will have to excuse me if I cough during the speech.
