Meet Gabriela Fernanda Torres.


She was paralyzed in a car accident when she was only 2 years old. That’s her with dance partner Pablo Rafael Pereyra.

Dance partner? YES. Torres and Pereyra competed at this year’s World Tango Championships.


Torres, who is 37 years old, and her partner Pereyra, are both from Argentina.

And they absolutely KILLED IT.


Not only did they show off their unique moves, they exuded sensuality.


Torres left her wheelchair at one point…


And her partner used it as part of the routine.


When the routine was over, Torres and Pereyra received a standing ovation.


And members of the crowd cheered “¡Bravo!”

Take a bow, guys. Take a bow.


You deserve it. Torres, who told the Associated Press that she didn’t want any special treatment at the competition, revealed why she entered World Tango Championships: “Dancing is totally motivating, liberating.”
