Dancing with cerebral palsy

I don't usually get teary-eyed reading the New York Times but yesterday's piece on how dance has transformed the life of a man with cerebral palsy really got to me -- in a good way. If you feel the need for some good news, it's a good read. Today I see it's climbed to #1 on the Times' "most emailed" list.

There's a video too, and you can read more about the dancer, Gregg Mozgala, on choreographer Tamar Rogoff's blog.
