Got the moves

CHRISTIAN Lane-Krebs proves anything is possible.

The bubbly seven-year-old from Bundaberg participated at the Kingaroy Eisteddfod this week; something his parents didn't think would ever be possible.

Three days after Christian was born he had serious internal bleeding that left him with cerebral palsy affecting the entire left side of his body.

His mum, Katrina, said Christian had made remarkable progress since being enrolled in dance.

"Christian went from not being able to talk and being in a wheelchair to singing and dancing on stage," she said.

"He's been dancing since he was three and it's great for his physical therapy.

"Christian said he wanted to do something that 'normal' children do and his sisters dance so it was a natural choice for him."

Christian took part in eight routines over two days including a duo with one of his sisters and a tap solo.

"His dance teacher has been so great because she finds dances which incorporate his limitations," Katrina said.

"We really love travelling to Kingaroy to take part in the eisteddfod because everyone is so friendly and I suppose we are quite protective of Christian.

"But he proves anything is possible when he gets up on stage and performs one of his routines."
