WASHINGTON -

President Barack Obama has attended his youngest daughter's dance recital at an arts center in suburban Maryland.
 
The White House said 11-year-old Sasha performed during a recital Saturday evening at the Music Center at Strathmore.
 
Located in North Bethesda, Md., about a half-mile outside the Capital Beltway, Strathmore is a nonprofit arts center that hosts events and classes.
 
Obama returned to the White House about an hour after arriving at the arts center.
