Harlem Shake & Ballet: The English National Dance Company Shows Everyone How It's Done (VIDEO)

It's official, kids. The Harlem Shake has infiltrated the world of fine arts.

The English National Ballet recently created a hilarious video showing its members succumbing to the giant internet trend. What begins as graceful pirouettes soon turns into raucous head tossing, wherein the ballerinas and ballerinos don unusual ensembles and writhe on the floor to bass-heavy music.

It's safe to say this version of the Harlem Shake is our favorite. We wouldn't expect anything less from professional dancers, right?
