Ashley Benson Performs Lyrical Dance to “Colors of the Wind” in 1998 (VIDEO)

Pretty Little LiarsAshley Benson (Hanna) continues to impress us with her childhood dancing ability. This week, it is in a video of 8-year-old Ash dancing her little heart out to the classic Pocahontas ballad, “Colors of the Wind.” Check out the vid below...

Ashley’s mom, Shannon Benson celebrated Ashley’s birthday today by breaking out the old-school dance tapes — and boy are we happy she did. In this particular vid, we get teeny tiny Ashley gracefully moving around the rehearsal room floor to one of our all-time favorite Disney songs. Or, as Shannon captioned the video: “Ashley dance rehearsal to ‘Colors of the Wind.’ Ashley starts out in the middle-front. Video isn't real clear, due to it being an old video.”

It’s blurry, but we can still make out Ashley’s signature look (she was so cute!). And, we’re quite impressed with both the split and the leg-hold she breaks out during the course of the rehearsal. Can Ashley still do a split? If so, write it in, PLL!

The posting of the video wasn’t Shannon’s only birthday tweet for her daughter. The proud mother also wrote out this loving tweet: “Today at 3:09am @AshBenzo was born!! Happy 24th Bday! Mom & Dad couldn't be prouder of your accomplishments & the young woman you've become!” Aww. We do love how proud Shannon is of Ashley and we would be, too! A star of one of the most popular teen dramas on television and an exciting new indie film role in the works? Impressive!

Are you as impressed by child Ashley’s dance moves as we are? Sound off in the comments below!
