Audrey Nethery – 6 years old girl from Louisville Kentucky, has Diamond Blackfan Anemia (DBA), a very uncommon but life-threatening bone marrow ailment that hinders the body's ability to circulate oxygen in the blood and minimizes the production of red blood cells in the body.
Yes, in spite of facing health issues, her passion for dancing doesn't stop. She loves to dance and is very much active in Zumba. Apart from this, she loves collecting stuffed toys.
The father Scott Nethery plays guitar and Audrey dances. This way they both performed at a DBA benefit.
Audrey is been taking Zumba classes from a local gym that offers Zumba in Louisville since she was a year old. Her passion grew everyday stronger and now when she is 6, she has become an online star.
To everyone, yes I literally mean that- this rock-star has melted the hearts of every stranger. Millions of views on her video and pictures has left a marvelous impact on everyone.
Julie, Audrey's mom posted a video of her performing a normal Zumba routine which was noticed by Zumba's corporate office who called her to convention.
The tiny dancer's zest, tight Zumba moves, music pumping workout allowed everyone to go on their feet after seeing her performance. She just burnt the stage by her moves.
The trip allowed Audrey to meet various Zumba instructors who taught her to perform and in addition to it, she got to visit Walt Disney where she met her favourite princess.
The parents of Audrey were quick to upload pictures and videos of her and they did all this to raise awareness about the under-researched DBA condition and to raise funds for DBA foundation.
Despite of everything Audrey keeps up her spirit high and has a positive outlook towards the world. She is holding a check of $10,000 that got raised through her videos and pictures.
"Every time I see her dance, even when it's just in her class, it makes me cry, but seeing her up on that stage was incredible," her mom said. "When she's dancing, she's happy and brings so much joy to everyone watching."
This is the video that shows Audrey Zumba all the way out and this highlights her DBA condition as well. She grooves well to Bruno Mars chart-topping hit uptown funk.
