Leonardo DiCaprio just wants to dance.

Wearing a bandana over his face, the 39-year-old actor attempted to go incognito during the Coachella Music Festival in Indio, Calif., Saturday. Unbeknownst to him, a fan took a video of the actor dancing like a raver during MGMT's show. And yes, it appears DiCaprio staged a dance-off with one of his bros.

The Wolf of Wall Street star and four-time Academy Award nominee—who once dreamed of becoming a professional break-dancer—was uninhibited as he performed a high kick and punched the air.

That same day, DiCaprio was seen partying at the Desert Pool Party, held at the Bootsy Bellows Estate.

So where did DiCaprio get those moves? "I used to be a pop-locker when I was in elementary school. It's actually one of the reasons why I didn't get an agent, because I auditioned and I had a punk rock haircut and I danced like a little street dancer, and they rejected me," he told Ellen DeGeneres in 2013.

As luck would have it, the actor got the chance to show off his surprising skills in The Wolf of Wall Street. "They were in my toolbox," DiCaprio told MTV News of his secret dance moves. "I haven't brought them out of the toolbox in many decades, but they have been sitting there dormant."
