Natalia Armoza dreamed of giving her daughter Pearl, who was born with cerebral palsy, a normal life and was tired of seeing her daughter miss out on amazing opportunities. One day, she decided to take a chance and emailed the New York City Ballet, one of the most prestigious ballet companies in the world, about creating a dance program for children with special needs.
In no time, the company responded by creating four workshops with the help of cerebral palsy specialist Joseph Dutkowsky, MD and two of their principal dancers, Adrian Danchig-Waring and Maria Kowroski.
The end result is truly touching. Seeing the children smiling and dancing around is nothing short of sheer joy…for everyone.
