This is the incredible moment when a former prima ballerina suffering from Alzheimer's disease transforms when she hears the music from Swan Lake.

Marta C Gonzalez, who died in 2019, sits in her wheelchair in a nursing home in Valencia.

A supervisor puts on her headphones and begins to play Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake – which Ms. Gonzalez danced to in her youth.

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

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

Within a few moments, her hands instinctively mimick the graceful movements she performed on stage in 1967.

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

The emotional moment shared the Asociacion Musica para Despertar, a Spanish charity that uses, among other things, the music of the life of dementia sufferers to improve their mood and memory.

In the video, Ms. Gonzalez listens to the music on headphones and soon starts repeating the choreography she danced to all those years ago.

Actor Antonio Banderas shared the clip on Facebook, saying he hoped the video would serve as "well-deserved recognition of her art and passion."

After her performance, she was greeted with applause by those present in the nursing home in Valencia.

She is then comforted when she tells a caregiver that she is "emotional".

"The power of music is immeasurable," said the charity. & # 39; May she rest in peace. & # 39;
