Sisters Quincy and Gracie Latkovski both love dancing. However, while Quincy has full command of her legs, her sister has cerebral palsy and cystic fibrosis, but that doesn’t deter the little girls from performing together at the “Jamfest Nationals.”

HLN TV has more on their beautiful story:

sisters2Quincy and Gracie Latkovski, a pair of sisters who recently won first place at a dance competition, are far from the first pair of siblings to perform together, but what made their dance special will likely pull at your heartstrings.

Unlike other dancers performing at the JAMfest Super Nationals, the Latkovski sisters didn’t incorporate an elaborate amount of props into their routine. Instead, the sisters from¬†Shepherdsville, Kentucky, used wheelchairs and a mirror to help tell their sweet story.

Although it may seem like an unusual pick, the wheelchair is a normal part of the Latkovski family’s daily routine. Gracie, 9, uses a wheelchair due to cerebral palsy and cystic fibrosis.

sisters3Gracie’s 11-year-old sister, Quincy, also danced alongside her younger sister in a wheelchair for part of the performance, despite having complete use of her legs.

“I love dancing and want to show that I can do anything everyone else can because I believe in my dreams,” Gracie told HLN affiliate¬†WXIX.

This year’s event was the largest to date — with more than 4,000 dancers and 300 teams performing. JAMfest representative Hayley Reyes said when the girls were performing, “there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.” Reyes notes the dance captured everyone — from spectators to vendors to fellow competitors. After watching the siblings perform, Reyes said everyone seemed to be impacted by the moving dance.

“Within a second, everyone became a family,” Reyes said.

The pair danced to “Reflection,” a song from the Disney movie “Mulan.”
