Audrey Nethery can’t stop moving, and nothing – not even a rare illness – will slow her down.

The 6-year-old, who suffers from the bone marrow failure syndrome Diamond-Blackfan anemia, won hearts when she brought her tiny and impressive dance moves to the stage at an international Zumba convention in Orlando, Florida, last week.

Audrey danced to a special routine alongside her hometown instructors and some other Zumba stars in front of a packed audience.


Diamond-Blackfan anemia is characterized by a failure of the bone marrow to produce red blood cells. In turn, DBA patients become severely anemic.
