Quvenzhané Wallis is a pro both in front of the camera and on the dance floor. 

The 9-year-old actress, who was also the youngest star ever to be nominated for an Oscar, admitted on Chelsea Lately that she boogies from time to time.

"And I had met you at a party a few months ago," Chelsea Handler mentioned, "I was asking your friend to go out and he said, 'Oh, I have to go home because she likes to dance late at night' in your hotel room."

The Onion apologizes for calling Wallis the C-word

"It's true, though," Wallis said. "I do dance at my house. I have a routine with one of my publicists and we go home and like we put on the music and do the routine."

And her dancing bug was clearly evident last night during Fox's Oscar party.

An eyewitness tells E! News that the cast of Beasts of the Southern WIld were on the dance floor from the second they walked in the room.  

There was a dance circle with Quvenzhané in the middle, who was going to town by tunes spun by DJ Michelle Pesce. Wallis apparently had requested Beyoncé or Rihanna to be played during the evening. 

You go, girl!
