President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump took part in a traditional dance and cake-cutting with members of the U.S. military.

The newly sworn-in president danced with U.S. Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Catherine Cartmell of Newport, Rhode Island.

Mrs. Trump danced with U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Jose A. Medina of Ponce, Puerto Rico.

Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen, also danced with members of the military.

The Trumps and Pences also participated in the military's traditional cake cutting to honor the sacrifice and service of its members. The cake is cut with a saber.

First lady Melania Trump thanked the members of the armed services at the third and final inaugural ball.

She said, "Thank you all for your service. I'm honored to be your first lady."

The first couple then danced to a cover of Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You."
