Little Girls in Wheelchairs Whip and Nae Nae Like a Boss

Six-year-olds Mayli and Brooklyn Gibson—no relation—have a lot in common: they both live in Texas, were both born with spina bifida and both love to dance. And a little thing like a wheelchair isn't going to stop either of these adorable girls from singing and dancing their hearts out to the latest dance gone viral, the Nae Nae.

The two girls first met when they were in the hospital for treatment when their files got mixed up due to their same last name. And the rest, as they say, is history. Mayli's mom Sami Gibson tells Today, "They both instantly connected and have been friends ever since."

And even though they live 45 minutes apart from each other, they still meet up regularly for dance parties and sleepovers. During one such meet-up, Brooklyn taught Mayli the Nae Nae and the girls decided to come up with their own choreography. Luckily, Gibson was there to film the dance magic for the rest of us to enjoy:

The girls love dance so much that they signed up for a wheelchair dance class, which sadly, didn't happen. But not to worry, supermom Gibson took matters into her own hands and started her own wheelchair dance class, calling it "Ayita." Now the girls, along with four others, meet up once a week to learn new dance routines. We can't wait to see the results!
