When videos go viral online–they usually have a short lifespan.
But, one viral video from 2016 has resurfaced, and it’s as beautiful now as it ever was. The video features Palestinian ballerina Rima Baransi on a trip with her family in Italy. While walking around, a violinist is playing in the street and Baransi’s father tells her to “dance.” Reluctant, she doesn’t at first, but with her father’s encouragement, she breaks out into a beautiful number on the spot.
The video was viewed on YouTube over 3 million times and was recently shared again on Twitter this week.
A ballerina from Palestine was visiting Italy and fell in love with the melody of the street music.
Her father encouraged her to dance saying "Come on Reema, dance for your father, do it for me.." ?❤️❤️ pic.twitter.com/oZV2VCd2Ec

People on Twitter began sharing it, commenting on how wonderfully beautiful her dance moves are.
I don’t know which is prettier. The music or the dancing. Gorgeous on both ends!
