Little Coppelia

This is a breathtaking video of a little girl called Clara with DiGeorge syndrome and autism who, unbeknownst to her parents, had memorized the dance movements of the mechanical doll who comes to life in the ballet Coppelia. Compare her movements to those of the dancer in the inset. Her therapist filmed her. You can read more about her at the family's website: Clara's Happy Thumbs. Or watch this news story about her: Video of autistic girl's ballet routine goes viral.


This is a beautiful story about a beautiful little girl. Clara is inspiring. Her parents, other family and friends must be so proud of her.
