The Ryan Reynolds–Yanis Marshall "Deadpool" Bromance Is Next-Level Amazing

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.

The vid in question is for Dion's epic (naturally—she doesn't exist on any other level) "Ashes," the lead single for the Deadpool 2 soundtrack. When it first came out late last week, some wondered exactly how and when Reynolds might have acquired the fabulous dance skills showcased in one section. Because, I mean:

But those moves looked verrrrry familiar to us. Before long, Reynolds himself had confirmed our suspicions: His double was none other than the Heels Queen of the World. And Reynolds, like the rest of us, is now completely onboard the Marshall train:

Delightfully, the infatuation is 1000 percent mutual:

#Rynis? #Reyshall? #Yanolds? Let the 'shipping begin.

Also, Deadpool 2 opens May 18. (Heels not included.)

(Also also: We didn't mean to COMPLETELY destroy the dream world in which Ryan Reynolds is an excellent dancer. In fact, over the weekend, Reynolds actually appeared on the Italian version of "Dancing with the Stars." And you know what? He wasn't half bad.)

How Project 21 Is Shaping the Next Generation of Competition-Dance Standouts

"I wish I had a better story about the name," says Molly Long, founder of the Orange County, CA–based dance studio Project 21. In truth, it's a play on the fact that she was born on the twenty-first of August, and 21 is her favorite number. "I was away on a teaching tour, the audition announcement was going live on Instagram the next day, and I desperately needed a name. Project 21 was just the least cheesy of the options I thought of!"

The fact that fans might expect the name to have some profound meaning speaks to the near-mythic status Project 21 has achieved on the competition and convention scene since its founding in 2014. Long's dancers are all wholly individual, yet jell seamlessly as a group, and are consistently snagging top prizes everywhere on the circuit. Each season brings a slew of new accolades, high-caliber faculty, and legions of devoted followers.

The industry has taken notice of the studio's unique ethos. "Molly gets through to her dancers in a special way, and they have this incomparable level of commitment to their craft as a result," says dancer and choreographer Billy Bell, who's worked closely with Long and her dancers. "That's what sets them apart—it's like a little dose of magic."
