DES MOINES, Iowa -- A group of Harding Middle School students will use the weekend to brush up on their break dancing skills.

The eight-member group called Harding Breakerz was selected to perform at the White House talent show next week.

Actor Kal Penn saw them perform while he was visiting as part of the Turnaround Arts program.

The students came up with a routine themselves and everyone will have a solo.

The seventh-graders are ready to go, but they say the butterflies are starting to kick in.

The students leave for Washington D.C. on Monday. They perform at the White House on Wednesday.
