Is there anything Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter cannot do? YouTuber unconservatory has proved that the choreography to Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” looks good even set to Shostakovich. In the video below, you can see her dance to the syncopated rhythms of the scherzo from Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 10.


This isn’t the only time someone has done a classical mash-up with Beyoncé’s iconic music video. Another YouTuber has synced it with Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring.


But The Rite of Spring doesn’t match “Single Ladies” nearly as well as the famous “Rite of Spring Workout,” starring Jamie Lee Curtis and John Travolta.
