Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokeswoman Maria Zakharova showed off one of her many talents at the at the ASEAN-Russia summit in Sochi, dancing to the song “Kalinka.”

At an earlier press conference Zakharova had promised the attendees Russian folk dances, and that she personally would dance the Kalinka, given the chance.

After the evening’s compere described the Kalinka as “a favorite not only of Russians and Chelsea fans, but a lot of foreigners too,” the spokeswoman took to the dancefloor.

“Though we had worked hard all day, I couldn’t resist it. I had promised that if we get a chance and we go to the reception, I will of course dance. As it turned out, I had to keep my word,” she explained, RIA Novosti reported.

Zakharova’s quick feet are all the more impressive since she managed to dance in very high heels; when asked how, she replied, “It’s a woman’s secret.”

“I can give a master-class.”

The song Kalinka was created in 1860 by Russian composer and lyricist Ivan Petrovich Larionov, and later became known internationally thanks to performances by the Alexandrov Red Army Ensemble.
