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."

The proud sister mentioned in a followup tweet that her brother has cerebral palsy and constantly amazes the family with his talents.

The kid's charisma is infectious.

Crosby couldn't resist sharing another adorable clip of him dancing along to "Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride" from Disney's Lilo & Stitch soundtrack.

He is stealing hearts on the internet.



A trade secret is revealed.

Crosby's tweet went viral, with over 633k likes.

His online fame also inspired others to share their stories.



People with various disorders are proving they are capable of so much more than some assume.





Having cerebral palsy doesn't mean they behave any differently than their siblings.

Mom gets a shout out here.


The kid continues earning perfect 10s across the board.




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.

As a "high achieving" student, the biggest mind-blowing fact I have ever learned has been the sheer amount of straight-up lying that happens in formal education.

It's a lot. Like a lot a lot. History class lied so hard.

Businesses have to turn a profit to be able to stay operational. We get it. A consumer is paying more than it costs to make the product to purchase the product. The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
