In mid-dance Katie Boudrow, 7, pictured, turned and locked eyes with herself. She was standing barefoot, wearing a pink tutu, with a black ribbon around her waist. Her hand reached out to gently touch her mirror image. Boudrow kept staring at herself, even taking moment to try and brush her blond hair behind her ear. And then a slight smile grew across her face. Boudrow has 9P deletion syndrome, a rare chromosomal disorder. Her mother, Debbie, said Boudrow didn't walk until she was four years old. Boudrow's mom said Dance with no limits helps with her daughter's coordination and strength.  'It helps build her attention span, her confidence,' Boudrow's mom said. 'I used to have to go inside with her, now she goes in all by herself.' Greg Kahn/Staff
