In this video of Spanish dancer Marta C. González, a prima ballerina with the New York Ballet in the 1960s, she listens to the music from Swan Lake and instantly remembers and performs the choreography while sitting in her wheelchair. The clip was actually filmed last year by Música para Despertar (Music to Wake Up To), an advocacy group for music therapy, but was recently shared on their social media accounts.
The music has transported González back to the stage as she gracefully moves her arms and head. González died in 2019, according to Scottish newspaper The Herald, after enduring Alzheimer’s disease. In this video, we get to witness the emotional effect music and dance can have on the body and mind, despite the effects Alzheimer’s can have on memory. We can feel the immense joy and emotion in her heart.
