In a blog post, Rory shared how Indy was inspired by watching other girls perform ballet and was thrilled to have the chance to learn one-on-one with Howell.
Indy, who has Down Syndrome, has been practicing ballet at home with her own little ballet bar next to a big mirror. Ballet is more than just a hobby for Indy, it’s also great for strengthening her muscles and balance. Rory believes it’s a “big win/win” for his daughter.
The video of Indy practicing ballet has gone viral with over 90.000 views and has brought smiles to viewers worldwide. It’s not the first time Rory has shared a glimpse into his family’s life through his blog. Fans of the Feek family have watched Indy grow up over the years. One commenter on the video wrote, “She’s a warrior in a tutu!”, which perfectly encapsulates Indy’s determination and love for ballet.
Rory is grateful for Howell’s dedication to teaching Indy ballet during a difficult time. Ballet has given Indy an outlet to express herself and has helped her physical development. The video of Indy dancing is a reminder of the beauty of dance and the joy it can bring to people’s lives.
