I found this story remarkable! It is incredibly moving. NPR and many others did a story on her recently. She is from Spain. She was a prima ballerina with the New York ballet.
As soon as she heard the music from Swan Lake she started doing the motions of ballet with her body while sitting in a wheelchair!

Oh, I saw another incredible story recently too. A young man with Down’s Syndrome won an ‘Iron Man’ competition!
I cried and had goose bumps with both of these stories.
I totally agree. She is extremely graceful. You can see how she is intensely immersed in her dance. It’s so beautiful.
Will check it out.
That's why I wear my ballet shoes when I work out. They're transformative.
I got chills watching it. Truly an inspiration. Also a mystery, right? The human mind is remarkable, even with a debilitating issue such as Alzheimer’s disease.
I have always found solace in music. We have a group of musicians in New Orleans that have participated in music therapy. Music is a universal language that is powerful and healing to the mind, body and spirit.
My mom loved to dance with my father to Sinatra! Her physical therapist played Sinatra tunes for her when she shared that info with him. It was so touching to see.
Sinatra brought a little joy and wonderful memories to her sessions while listening to favorite tunes. Nowadays, music is so portable. We can pull it up on our phones anytime that we like.
