Julia Stiles is showing off her moves!

The actress, 42, gave fans a glimpse at her dance skills in a surprise cameo on Saturday Night Live on Saturday as she reprised her role as Sara from the 2001 film Save the Last Dance in a hilarious performance skit on the show.

The skit began with SNL’s Chloe Fineman dressed in a Christmas robe as she introduced a “sexy gift idea” for the holidays during Weekend Update, which was hosted by Colin Jost and Michael Che.

“The perfect holiday gift this year is the dance that Julia Stiles does at the end of the 2001 movie Save the Last Dance,” Fineman, 35, said. She then disrobed to reveal an all-black outfit matching the final performance look of Stiles’ character from the film.

Fineman then went into a full dance routine which she coined, “Street/Ballet”, resembling Sara’s last dance.

“So does she get into Juliard…?” Jost, 41, asked Fineman.

Stiles then jumped into the frame as she responded, “Yes!” while wearing an outfit that matched Fineman's and her own slick bun. “Sara did get into Julliard,” she added, as the audience cheered.

“How?” Jost asked her. “Well, you didn’t see the end of the dance,” Stiles replied as Fineman shouted, “Hit it!” The pair then performed a synchronized final part of their Save the Last Dance routine as they sat on chairs, finishing with a fist bump.

“OK, so Colin, what did you think?” Fineman asked Jost.

“Well I can’t say this on the record yet…but welcome to Juliard!” Jost said.

Save the Last Dance was a breakout movie for Stiles, along with the rest of the cast she appeared in the film with at the time, which included Sean Patrick Thomas, who played her love interest Derek, Kerry Washington and Bianca Lawson.

Stiles’ character Sara's dance routine in the 2001 film led to her being accepted into the prestigious performing arts school Julliard in New York City in the movie.
