We Want To Put This Video on "Replay"
Remember when "American Idol" finalist Todrick Hall made Halloween extra fabulous with his Chicago-meets-Disney mashup "Spell Block Tango"?
Well, thanks to the talented blogger of Oh My Disney, we celebrated New Year's Eve in a similarly Disney-dance-tastic fashion.
Set to this summer's hit single "Replay" by Zendaya Coleman (from "Shake It Up," "Dancing with the Stars" and Frenemies), this video captures some of Disney's danciest moments. It's got the classics: the Genie from Aladdin, Roger from One Hundred and One Dalmations, Lumière and his dinner party from Beauty and the Beast and a montage of waltzing princesses, to name a few. But it's also got some 21st century stuff: Tiana from The Princess and the Frog and Rapunzel and Flynn from Tangled.
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.

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