Gwyneth Paltrow Doing 'Toddlerography' Is the Best Thing We've Seen All Week

We already know that Gwyneth Paltrow's got moves. We've seen her bust them out on the Grammys with Cee Lo, as substitute teacher Holly Holliday on Glee, and in all those inspirational Tracy Anderson workout videos that kind of make us hate her even as we secretly aspire to be her.

But we've never seen Gwynnie bust a move quite like this before. The actress/singer/author stopped by "The Late Late Show With James Corden" Tuesday night to get her groove on in a hilarious segment called "Toddlerography," in which she and James take a dance class led by a bunch of energetic toddlers.

Dressed in an all-black workout ensemble with a stretchy Jane Fonda-era headband, Gwyneth's skills were seriously put to the test as she and Corden attempted to follow the lead of the toddler choreographers—toddlerographers?—who've clearly seen Step Up All In one too many times.

"I'm so glad we got into this class," Corden stage whispers during a pre-class stretch sesh.

"It's impossible to get into," Paltrow tells him, mid side-bend. "It's supposed to be really intense."

"I know," Corden responds. "I heard they made Beyonce cry."

"Oh my God, she's coming," Paltrow says as the first pint-sized instructor sashays in. "Just don't look her in the eye."

As the theme from Flashdance plays in the background, the duo hilariously attempt to keep up with each toddlerographer's (it works, right?) highly skilled moves, which include, but are not limited to, high kicks, hip thrusts, open-arm spins, across-the-room leaps, and some good old-fashioned rolling around on the floor.

Turns out, like Beyonce herself, these two came to SLAY.

Of course, when all is said and done, an out-of-breath Corden simply wants to hydrate. "That was intense," he tells Paltrow, as the pair—and one of their instructors—pop a squat on the dance floor and break out the juice boxes.

Drink up, guys. Then get back in formation.
