The New York City Ballet's Class for Kids with Disabilities

It's a wonderful scene: 19 young kids with physical disability, living their dreams, swirling around in tutus at New York's most prestigious dance company, like a bunch of prima ballerinas. And it all started with a heartfelt email from a mum, who was tired of seeing her daughter miss out.

Mother Natalia Armoza whose daughter Pearl was born with cerebral palsy reached out to the New York City (NYC) Ballet, about creating a dance program for children with special needs. 

Awesomely, the NYC Ballet listened up. They set up four workshops for Pearl, bringing in cerebal palsy specialist Joseph Jutkowsy, M.D. to consult on the classes, which were to be led by the Lincoln Center's principal dancers, Maria Kowroski and Adrian Dancing-Waring.
