    Incredible moment former prima ballerina now suffering from Alzheimer’s is transformed

    Incredible moment former prima ballerina now suffering from Alzheimer’s is transformed when she hears music from Swan Lake

    • Marta C Gonzalez, who died in 2019, is shown at a care home in Valencia 
    • She is visibly moved as Tschaikovsky’s Swan Lake begins to play on headphones 
    • Ms Gonzalez remembers the choreography that she danced to in 1967

    This is the incredible moment a former prima ballerina suffering with Alzheimer’s is transformed when she hears the music from Swan Lake. 

    Marta C Gonzalez, who died in 2019, is shown sitting in her wheelchair at a care home in Valencia. 

    A carer places headphones on her and begins playing Tschaikovsky’s Swan Lake – which Ms Gonzalez danced to in her youth.

    She had been a prima ballerina with the New York Ballet in the 1960s.

    As the music floods through her, Ms Gonzalez is visibly moved. 

    Within moments, her hands instinctively reenact the graceful movements she had performed on stage in 1967. 

    She continues to follow along with the music and remembers the choreography she danced to decades ago.   

    The emotional moment was shared by the Asociacion Musica para Despertar, a Spanish charity which uses the music of dementia patients’ lives to improve their mood and memory, among other things.

    In the video Ms Gonzalez listens to the music through a pair of headphones and soon begins to replicate the choreography she danced to all those years ago.

    Actor Antonio Banderas shared the clip on Facebook, writing that he hoped the video would serve as ‘a well-deserved recognition of her art and her passion’.

    After finishing her performance, she is met with applause by those present at the care home in Valencia.

    She is then comforted as she tells a care worker she is ’emotional’,

    ‘The power of music is immeasurable,’ the charity said. ‘May she rest in peace.’
