Melissa McCarthy, Sesame Street

Jesse Grant

Melissa McCarthy is a dancing machine.

Fans witnessed what the Oscar-nominated actress was workin' with back in October 2011 when she hosted Saturday Night Live, but now McCarthy has taken her moves from the New York stage to Sesame Street.

The Identity Thief star will be a guest on the children's TV show on Thursday, and we got a sneak peek at the star showing off some steps with none other than Elmo.

After expressing how much she loves to dance, McCarthy showed Elmo some of her favorite moves, like "shake my dancing arms," or "shake my dancing legs," before joining him in teaching viewers that day's word: choreographer.

And what better way than to actually bring one in to teach the duo a little routine?

So, a penguin stopped by and showed them how to flappawaddleboomboom.
