Series - Barely Breathing Ballerina

Ballerina Struggles to Balance Health, Family, and Work (Barely Breathing Ballerina E5)

Bailey Vincent desperately wants to get back to doing the things she loves as she battles a lung infection that followed her most recent surgery. In this episode of Barely Breathing Ballerina, she will stretch herself as far as she dares in order to participate in a family outing followed by a dance rehearsal with her Company360 youth ensemble.

It's a beautiful fall day as Bailey, husband John, and their two daughters, Kage and Follin, set out for nearby Snead's Farm to see their collection of animals, sample their delicious hot chocolate, and, hopefully, find that perfect pumpkin. Although she is deaf, Bailey strives to be a normal mom and wife despite her limits. Sometimes knowing sign language can be an advantage, especially when your daughter has a question and she is way on the other side of a pumpkin patch!

Bailey is unwilling to let her being deaf be a damper on her family life or her work life. Her creative answer to her condition is to add some ASL into the choreography as a way to incorporate her deafness and deaf culture, and make it something celebrated and beautiful. The far bigger issue for her when she gets to the studio is making sure that she paces herself so she is able to demonstrate and talk the Youth Company group through the movements without losing her breath.

Bailey is anxious to finish the dance training because there are only a few weeks to go before the scheduled performance. Although her health issues make it difficult, Bailey is inspired by her group and how much emotion they put into their dancing. "They always give me 110% of themselves. There's no way I can't give 100% of myself, in return," she says thankfully. "Despite the hardships, it's always worth it to get any amount of time with these beautiful dancers who give so much to me."

Although Bailey is still recovering, the joy she gets from spending time with her family and her dancers is the best medicine she could possibly get.

Autistic Basketball Champ Teaches Kids Hope With Hoops

How would you feel if a team of medical specialists reviewed your background and declared, at the age of 5, that because you had Autism, you would never be successful academically, that you would likely not graduate from high school much less go to college, and that being an athlete was out of the question. Anthony Ianni faced that future and just flat out refused to accept it – he ignored what the doctors said, set goals, worked hard, and created his own destiny.

Birthday Bashes Show Homeless Children They Are Worthy of Love

If you are a homeless family there are a lot of things you don't have – easy access to a private bathroom, regular hot meals, a comfortable bed. There is also a huge hole where happy family gatherings, like birthday parties, would ordinarily be filled with warmth and togetherness. Now, in one community in Los Angeles, there is an organization called Worthy of Love that is filling in a little bit of that hole by hosting special events for the children of these families.
