Beyoncé: Pop diva, movie star, and now: gym teacher.

The performer surprised a squealing class of middle-school students at PS 161: Pedro Albizu Campos middle school in Harlem. The students were in the gymnasium, dancing to a choreographed routine to a remix of her hit, "Get Me Bodied."

The singer, wearing sky-high heels, skinny white jeans, and a "Let's Move!" top, joined 85 starstruck students to dance up a storm to the song she adapted for the workout, called "Move Your Body." Despite the appearance of the music icon, the kids kept their cool and kept on dancing -- and Beyoncé barely stole the show from these talented dancers-in-training.

Middle schools across the country participated in the "dance-in" -- all part of first lady Michelle Obama's anti-obesity campaign Let's Move!. And let's just say, with those moves, Beyoncé is on board.

The school kids, who had the routine down, certainly got a kick out the star's high kicks. One seventh grader told CBS News, "It was amazing. Beyoncé came out of nowhere and started dancing with us. That made me so happy."

Michelle Obama also surprised students and showed off her "Dougie" in a D.C. area public school celebrating the day of fitness.

But the video of Beyoncé and her middle-school back-up dancers is what moved the Web, with almost 600,000 views. Searches on Yahoo! have boogied up the charts with lookups on "beyonce move your body video," "beyonce lets move," and "beyonce move your body." Gym class never looked so good.
