Former Ballerina With Alzheimer's Remembers Swan Lake



Marta C. González, who was a New York City Ballet prima ballerina, instantly remembers her routine from more than 50 years ago.

In the footage, Marta - who sadly passed away in 2019 as a result of her condition - is sitting in a wheelchair at her care home in Valencia and lights up after hearing the classical piece.

She gestures for the music to be turned up and begins to perfectly move her arms to the music, as she did on stage in 1967.
