Video Break Time: 12-Year-Old Charlize Glass Is Amazing
You guys know how we feel about Beyoncé.
And you know how we feel about yung'uns rocking out to Beyoncé.
So our new favorite video should come as no shock to you all: It's a yung'un. Rocking out. To Beyoncé. ("Yoncé," to be exact.)
Her name is Charlize Glass. She is 12, and adorable, and totally, totally sick. Did we mention she's already worked with Justin Bieber and Ciara, appeared on "Ellen" (dancing to Beyoncé, of course) and been a runner-up on "America's Best Dance Crew"? 12 years old, and already more accomplished than we will ever be.
Enjoy! You can find more Charlize here.

We've said it before and we'll say it again: New York City Ballet principal Sara Mearns is some SERIOUS #goals. Her strength and power onstage borders on superhuman.

Which is why she was the perfect source for Vogue's latest ballet fitness story.
Well, this brings class videos to a whole new level! Choreographer Phil Wright and dancer Ashley Liai have been together eight-plus years, but she was still in total shock when he proposed to her mid-dance at Millennium Dance Complex earlier this week. Why? Well, the whole thing was unbelievably perfect.

Here's what she had to say about the options dancers have surrounding questionable costumes.
