An aspiring young ribbon dancer impressed his sister Tori Crosby from St. George, Utah, so much she had to share him with the world.
She filmed her brother twirling around his makeshift dancing arena, painting the atmosphere with two "ribbons" trailing his every move.
The pre-teen had learned the routine from a YouTube clip, which you can see simultaneously streaming from the sister's iPad in her lap.
But his coordination is surpassing expectations because of his ability to overcome physical odds.
Tori posted the video on Twitter, describing her instant reaction to her brother's skills.
"my brother started doing a ribbon dance and i looked down at the ipad and was shook lmao."

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Cerebral Palsy is a group of disorders that impairs one's physical mobility and affects the ability to maintain balance and posture.
CP is caused during brain development or by brain injuries in infancy and is a common motor disability in childhood.
Depending on which areas of the brain are affected, one or more of the following movement disorders can occur: stiff muscles (spasticity), uncontrollable movements (dyskinesia), and poor balance and coordination (ataxia).
The organization aims to fund for the most "promising research projects for cerebral palsy" in the U.S. and helps support CP Registers and Surveillance Programs.
