Premier Mark McGowan has taken to the stage at the Perth Fringe to show off his dancing chops.

Mr McGowan was filmed dancing at a show this weekend to the tune of Nelly’s Hot In Here, to the delight of the audience, who cheered and whistled as he shook his hips and mimed taking off his shirt while the professional performers watched from a safe distance behind him.

Later in the performance, Mr McGowan twirled a hula hoop.

Mr McGowan was named the state’s most popular premier last year, with 92 per cent of West Australians backing his stance on the State’s hard border, according to a People’s Voice Poll by Painted Dog Research, and his latest performance is sure to win approval as well.

It’s not the first time he’s become a cultural icon either, with his quote that “there’s nothing unlawful about going for a run and having a kebab” being knitted onto a jumper before being bought by the Art Gallery of WA.
