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.

For their recent joint class at Millennium, Friedman and Marshall cooked up some spicy flamenco-tinged choreo that perfectly complements Britney's "Change Your Mind (No Seas Cortés)." Naturally, a veritable who's-who of L.A.'s all-star dance scene came out to slay it, including Kaelynn "KK" Harris, Noelle Marsh, Sloan-Taylor Rabinor, Mollee Gray, Madison Cubbage and 2016 Cover Model Search finalist Kerrynton Jones. And, thank the dance gods, Friedman and Marshall decided to kick off the class video themselves, showing the rest of the world what the dance embodiment of the fire emoji looks like. Just #goals for days.

Happy #MotivationMonday, friends:
