For the Disney Fanatic in All of Us


Just in time to prepare for the 2014 Winter Olympics, here is one of the best figure skating routines you will ever have the pleasure of watching. Performed by Amanda Evora and Mark Ladwig, two-time U.S Pair Skating Silver medalists, this routine brings to life Disney’s Pocahontas in the best way possible: on ice.

Although I will be the first to admit that Pocahontas grotesquely warps history, it remains one of my favorite Disney movies. No matter how old I get, there will always be that little five-year-old in me racing around my living room, dramatically belting out “Colors of the Wind,” and wishing my hair looked as pretty and untangled while blowing in the wind (pro tip: it never will).

That is my long-winded way of saying that if you are anything like me, YOU HAVE TO WATCH THIS VIDEO. Trust me. It is beauty and magic and everything good with the world.
