Is there anyone among us who wouldn't gladly walk a mile in Yanis Marshall's (6-inch–heeled) shoes? The fabulous dancer and choreographer seems to be living his best life 1000 percent of the time, whether that involves making viral YouTube videos with Brian Friedman or kindling a bromance with Ryan Reynolds. And you don't have to take our word for it: Vogue just had a video crew follow the heels queen for 24 hours, documenting a period in which Marshall not only rehearsed with A-list dance ladies and gentlemen, but also performed (and generally frolicked) at the L.A. Pride Parade.

You guys: Ryan Reynolds and Yanis Marshall are having a gorgeous bromance, as made possible by a Céline Dion music video in which Marshall wears the movie star's signature Deadpool jumpsuit in addition to his own signature stilettos.
Has a more #extra sentence ever existed? Well, believe us when we say that the video is EVEN EXTRA-ER.
Happy Thanksgiving, dance friends! Since today is a day for reflection and gratitude (and eating...so much eating), I asked my fellow Dance Spirit editors to tell me the dance-world things they're most grateful for. Here's what they had to say:
We are seriously, seriously 'shipping the epic best-friendship of Brian Friedman and Yanis Marshall, a match made in a heaven where everyone wears fabulous 5-inch stilettos at all times. And when the two of them team up to create a routine to the new Britney Spears song? I MEAN.
