When the music flips on, something electric strikes 14-year-old Nick Motlomelo’s long limbs. His hips swivel, his body bends, his shoulders shimmy.
Sometimes the magic happens on cue, in sync with the rest of the performers putting on a special version of “Annie Jr.” And when it doesn’t, 13-year-old classmate and mentor Liliana Becker is there to help Nick, who has Down syndrome, get to the right spot on stage and remember that he’s part of a bigger group.
