WATCH: Theresa May dances on stage in mockery of stilted moves

The British prime minister danced on stage to Abba's 'Dancing Queen' at the Conservative Party Conference

British Prime Minister Theresa May danced on stage to Abba's "Dancing Queen" in a nod to her much-mocked dancing on a trip to South Africa earlier this year.

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.

Party members roared with laughed and cheered the Prime Minister's robotic dance moves.

Mrs May also referenced her dancing a number of times in the speech, which focused on Britain's departure from the EU and took aim at opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn.

The Prime Minister also joked about her calamitous speech last year when she could not stop coughing and the sign behind her fell down.
