MANHATTAN — Beyonce has schooled pop stars on how to get down since her days in Destiny's Child. On Tuesday, the diva took her dance moves to P.S. 161 in Harlem to the surprise of dozens of students.

Students at the school on West 133rd Street and Amsterdam Avenue were performing the dance from the singer's "Move Your Body" video when Beyonce joined them on the dance floor, as seen in a video posted to YouTube.

The shocked students didn't miss a beat and kept dancing as Beyonce did the running man in skinny jeans and platform heels.

The students were performing as part of the Let's Move! Flash Workout Event to Fight Childhood Obesity, a program started by First Lady Michelle Obama as a way to teach children active lifestyles.
