Cute little 6-year-old Sarai Arce was born with brittle bone disease and doctors said she might never walk.

Sarai did walk but needed a walker until she was 3-years-old, and still lacked muscle tone and balance.

Then something special happened.

(Story continues from "Read More")

Her mother Wanda Arce, of Orlando, Florida learned of Come Dance With Us, a hospital program of Nemours Children’s Health System and Orlando Health System.

It’s run by Anne-Marie Wurzel.

Anne-Marie began the program in October, 2016 for children ages 3 to 6 after her daughter Reagan, a hospital patient, had lost motor skills due to metabolic shock.

The program is a two-day workshop, in which under medical supervision, the children are taught to dance, in part by ballerinas from the Orlando Ballet.

Afterward, they are treated to an Orlando Ballet performance, such as “The Nutcraker.”

“She’s like dancing all over the place,” Wanda told ABC News in speaking of Sarai. “And trying to do the dances that she was taught and saw in ‘The Nutcraker.’

“… She’s very active or tries to be very active, so that kind of motivated her a little but more to say ‘Hey, I could do this. I could be a dancer. I could be a ballerina.”

But most of all, Sarai and the other children are having fun, and that has always been the primary objective of Come Dance With Us.
