Georgian children with special needs dance for the pope


After the pope delivered his message to the Camillians in Georgia, a rather large group of children, including some with disabilities, performed a dance for their honored guest. 

The dancers were in typical costumes as they spun around and performed stunts, despite a little slip, which did not stop them from rising up from the error. 

Soon after, those with disabilities were brought out on the floor in their costumes to partake in the dance as well. They danced to some traditional music, as well as Charlotte Church's rendition of "Pie Jesu.”

Much to the pope's delight, they ended the dance by releasing doves into the sky.
