Documentary Short for the ENDPAIN project "From Disabled to Unstoppable"
In 2011, professional dancer (Juiliard graduate; former Joffrey New York dancer; Alvin Ailey ; Company at Metropolitan Ballet of St. Louis and Alum of High School of Performing Arts, plus more) and new mom, Josette Tkacik was diagnosed with severe sudden onset of advanced rheumatoid arthritis, an excruciatingly painful and disabling auto immune disease for which current western medicine claims there is no cure. The only available treatment is radical and life shortening pharmaceuticals aimed (at best) to slow the progression of the disease. Ultimately Josette paved her own path, and self-healed RA without the assistance of Western Medicine. She was declared a Medical Miracle in 2016 as No Evidence of Disease could be found in bloodwork.

HOW THIS STAR INSTRUCTOR IS THRIVING WITH HER ZUMBA CAREER"
The city of Santa Barbara has a problem. Its largest public meeting space, the Carillo Ballroom, isn't big enough to hold the throngs of people who show up daily to dance their hearts out at the local Zumba class. That's right: Up to 300 people pack into the glorious space to Zumba every day. Seem crazy? It’s even crazier when you realize it wasn’t long ago the instructor, Josette Tkacik, would walk into her classroom and see a grand total of three attendees. Spend a little time with Tkacik, though, and you’ll understand that she’s no ordinary instructor—she's an inspiring beacon of strength, and proof that mind over matter is a prescription that can work.
